Currently, the situa
Lying push also very uncomfortable as a woman to push through the child's own and gravity do not participate during the horizontal sorts.There is one more thing: the doctor and the midwife at the birth of a horizontal play an active role in labor, but the vertical birth give the woman freedom and it can do a lot yourself.
How is the birth of a child in an upright position?
At the stage of cervical dilatation future mom is given the freedom of action.New mother can do whatever she wants: to sit, walk, stand, hanging on her husband, polusidet on a chair to swim.Due to the choice of a comfortable posture, the woman is not as painful are contractions of the uterus is very gentle disclosure.For pain relief during childbirth resorted vertical rarely.
Currently, doctors agreed that during labor the woman should move, so the activity of women in the normal birth of a child in the first step is welcome.
The second stage begins expulsion of the fetus.This is the attempts that lead to the birth of the child.Woman taking pose kneeling, squatting half-sitting, standing, sitting in a special chair.Woman in labor intuitively understands what position to adopt it.
Experts advise in advance to rehearse every possible posture for vertical childbirth, and what a woman has to be acceptable, it will solve itself.Optimal posture is one in which the child moves to the exit gradually, gently, gently.
And every woman chooses for itself a comfortable position: the one you need to squat, the other kneeling, lying third.
