Contractions, attempts and position in childbirth

Contractions, attempts and position in childbirth

In the 18th century, in order to be safe, doctors began offering women to lie on their backs during labor. But modern obstetricians have no reason to deprive future moms of choice.

On the contrary, it is known that the ability to change poses at will reduces the number of obstetric complications.

My 30 years of experience suggests that the position of the mother’s body affects the course of labor (this is the first period of labor) rather than the process of birth of the baby.

At this time, the upright position will benefit the woman and the baby. Moreover, try to move, then the head of the baby will press on the neck, helping it to open, and the pain will decrease.

Here is what you can do:

  • Stand up, lean on a special ball and rotate the pelvis in a circle. Then the head of the baby, following your movements, will make the same circle around the edge of the cervix, and the process of its disclosure will go faster and softer.
  • Sit on a chair or any surface with a hole in the center and spread your legs wide. If the future dad is with you at birth, try to sit on his lap.
  • Lie on your side, bending one leg at the knee, and take the other aside.
  • Stand on all fours (for example, on the bed), lean your hands on the ball and sway back and forth on it. If the ball is not at hand, lift the head end of the bed and stand on all fours (you can put a pillow under the belly).

A large gymnastic ball has become an indispensable attribute of maternity homes. Simple exercises on the ball help expectant mothers to ease contractions and accelerate cervical dilatation during the first stage of labor.

Contractions, attempts and position in childbirth

From the beginning of the attempt and until the birth of the baby’s head, the expectant mother will carry out the stage either lying on her back (classic position), or kneeling (vertical), or squatting. The choice of position is fundamental, only if a woman has a serious imbalance of the bone pelvis (narrowing or injury due to injury).

In this case, it is safer to give birth upright or lying on your side. True, the latter technique requires serious skills from the maternity hospital staff and is not practiced everywhere. Moreover, now future mothers with pelvic disproportions are more likely to be referred for a cesarean section.

But vertical births are carried out in many maternity hospitals and clinics.

What you need to know to make a choice between the classical and vertical position at the time of birth of the baby?

  • In the upright position, it will be easier to push, because under the action of gravity the head of the baby will rush down. In the classical position, a woman can only rely on herself.
  • One important note: to be able to stand upright should be able to. It is necessary to work out these movements even during pregnancy at special preparatory courses. Repeat them after the instructions of the midwife right at the time of delivery will not work.
  • Be prepared that immediately after the birth of the baby in an upright position, you will be offered to pick him up. At the same stage of childbirth in the classical position, a young mother will be placed on her stomach.

As for childbirth in the squatting position, in my experience, women quickly get tired in this posture and try to lie down.
