Hoping for a straight forward birth? Why your baby's position matters...

When it came time for our firstborn's labour, we thought everything was going to go marvelously, because he was "head down". We had no idea how his head and body were positioned actually mattered. But IT DID. We had no idea that the positions I worked and rested in influenced his position. But THEY DID. And we had no idea that the positions I was encouraged to birth in increased his funky positioning. But THEY DID!

We want you to have the empowered birth you dream about. We want you to be knowledgeable about what positions to adopt in pregnancy to help your baby into an optimal position for an easier and more straight forward birth. And we want you to feel empowered during your birth, having the confidence to instinctively move your body into positions which open up the space your baby has to move down and out. 

Do you know which activities during pregnancy increase the likelihood of your baby being in a funky position? If not, check out this video!

We believe Optimal Foetal Positioning (aka, how to help your baby into an optimal position for an easier, more straight forward birth) is SO important, we have included a two part, interactive tutorial as part of The Birthing Room's Online Antenatal Classes.
