• Asymetrical position for birthing

    Posted on March 31, 2015 by in Home Birth

    When I gave birth to my daughter unassisted.  I instinctively adapted an ays metrical position.

    When I talks to women in my classes about using this position possibly in their labour and just allowing their babies to surf out.  I am often met with a very wry smell of disbelief.

    Interesting today to receive this blog which testifies to this being a organic instinctive position to adopt if the baby is coming quickly.

    “Many women who give birth quickly or unattended assume an asymmetric position naturally. This woman from Mexico assumed an asymmetric position (one leg up and the other leg down) instinctively in a recent U.K. birth that occurred so fast she gave birth on the lawn outside the clinic.”

    Practice some instinctive positions in labour, like on all fours, on your side, half squat, full squat, back against wall, holding onto something and letting your hips swing.  Anything you do is perfect for getting your baby our.  So go ahead and dance and explore your body.
