Birth on YOUR BACK during labor, here’s what you need to know mom. Why did the ‘birthing on your back’ trend start?

Yes in all the movies, but it was clear before then

You can blame the French King Louis XIV (1638-1715). He enjoys watching women give birth and is dismayed at the hidden sight when the birth takes place in a birthing stool.

So, yes, you guessed it HE was the one who promoted back birth as the new birth method.

Well, it’s not about ‘seeing better’; for the health care provider. It’s about giving birth better for the woman. will you agree

Despite ALL the evidence supporting ‘sacrum-freeing’ positions such as squatting, kneeling, side lying to speed up labor and open the pelvic outlet – we’re told we should give birth on our backs?

Read that again.

Also, you don’t ‘need’ to be on your back for pushing just because you got an epidural.
Speak Mom. Have these conversations at your antenatal appointments, don’t assume things will be done to benefit you in the birthing suite.
