Your baby apparently being in the ‘wrong’ position means your body is giving you the equivalent of a warning light going off – and YOU need an answer – something needs to change.A breech presentation can turn at any point – even in labour!
Relaxing mum’s pelvis and undoing all back and sacral tension is the first step.
This alone is often all that is needed – not hours of smelly moxa on the toes. Added bonus – the back ache and sciatica and all discomforts may magically depart.
Once your baby has flipped from breech, and is head down – this is not all the battle. For most, this is still not in an optimal position. To adjust yourself to make birth easier – you don’t have to be on all fours . . .
If you are after a solution and you know that you can change what happens in your life, please read on ..
Baby and your body are trying to tell you something. It may be from reading the information within these eBooks – you see how birth and life panned out for other mothers – and see what is happening in your own life . . and there are more than one with each purchase from me – may change far more than the way your baby is currently lying within you!!!!
It may change the whole way you deal with EVERYTHING – as you really are powerful within your own life – you just forgot!!!
It may look like luck to everyone else. It is often as simple as using a little moxa stick, and some massage in all the right places .. It may be that this small ‘hiccup’ in your pregnancy is exactly what you needed to change direction – and becoming more aware, more conscious and more present is EXACTLY the sort of parent you may well wish to be. Stop ‘hoping for the best’ out of fear
Create the opening pelvis that makes birthing easy on you and baby. . . . nature want you to win – and baby is waiting for the change. Perhaps there is more that you need to know.
Yes., you may have a great birthing team – but are they paying close enough attention? Most women coming to see me as an acupuncturist want me to induce their labour – but baby is usually in the non optimal position. Everyone may well say baby is good to go. Why not make sure? Starting labour, or progressing well if a medicalised induction happens, is difficult, unless baby swings around.
Is Your Baby In The Optimal Position To Arrive?
1. Why Does Fetal Positioning Matter?
Babies fit better coming out of most women’s pelvises if they are positioned in the optimal way.
A lot of women can only birth OP and a lot can’t. If you are staring down the face of an induction – or this is unlikely as you wish to VBAC, please read on.
Often birth attendants do not notice that baby is NOT in the optimal lie – or maybe do not realise the importance of this. OP alone can stop you enjoying an easy birth and hence post birth life. It is in YOUR best interests to not ‘hope for the best’, by assuming everyone is there to do a perfect job. Blissfully handing over responsibility may come at a huge cost.
Baby in the OP Position for Most Women Means:
1. Labour is slow to start (and in fact may not do so without assistance), ‘overdue’ and most often ‘augmented’ (hurried up chemically — often at great stress to mum and baby).
2. Labour is often slow to progress, if it is pushed along artificially.
3. Labour is extremely painful — especially giving rise to dreadful back ache during contractions.
4. Labour may stall or is often not coordinated, or behaving as labour naturally does.
(Many, especially those who labour so well and who then get stuck — ‘Failure to Progress’ at about 7 cm, would be horrified to find later that understanding how baby was lying, and being able to alter this prior to labour beginning, may have been all that was necessary to give them an easy birth).
5. If full dilation occurs, for some mums, a tortuous process of getting baby out the wrong way begins. Baby has a lot more work and distress to negotiate the more difficult pelvic configuration.
6. For some, baby is born as a frank OP naturally (see Carole’s story page 37)
For others, a C section follows — or may be arranged before labour even begins, or after trying to birth and failing, due to ‘Failure to Progress’ . . . ..
