Feedback If you are a seller for this product, would you like to suggest updates through seller support? I included pictures for a size comparison. Can you stand up and deliver? Many difficult labours result from 'malpresentation', where the baby's position makes it hard for the head to move through the pelvis, so changing the way the baby lies could make birth easier for mother and child. This is not to suggest that women should not adopt this position if they find it comfortable. Thank you for signing up!
Many women find sitting on the toilet comfortable.
This has long been noted amongst midwives, and has now been confirmed by research eg Gardberg . In most cases, persistent occiput posterior position develops through a malrotation and only in a little more than one-third of cases through absence of rotation from an initially occipitoposterior position. Mothers of babies in the 'posterior' position are more likely to have long and painful labours as the baby usually has to turn all the way round to facing the back in order to be born. For one thing, when you're lying on your back, your uterus compresses major blood vessels, potentially depriving the baby of oxygen and making you feel dizzy or queasy. Another very important principle that was neglected related to the specific nature of the associated rocking with the all-fours posture. The chair is very comfortable I am 5'5" lb and it has multiple angles you can sit in. Hands-and-knees positioning during labor has been recommended on the theory that gravity and buoyancy may promote fetal head rotation to the anterior position and reduce persistent back pain.
