Provisions for childbirth. What are the generic positions and what's the difference?

Until now, the idea of ​​"management" of births by doctors, when mother is given a passive role, is popular. However, recently a large number of doctors become supporters of the theory that the birth of a child can not be harmoniously implemented if the mother is just an object of medical manipulation.

Now they are already counting on the woman giving birth as an active person in childbirth, after all, so, most likely, it was conceived by nature. And here there is a need for the ability of a woman to apply various poses that facilitate the process of birth, in addition to the traditional horizontal. There is nothing new here - only natural methods of labor were used before.

The position of the birth on the back is



The main task of a woman in battles is maximum relaxation, however, the recumbent passive pose is not the optimal option. This position is convenient for the doctor, and not for a woman giving birth, for him this position is very technological. However, even doctors agree that the position on the back during the bouts is not physiological.

The fact is that a constant position on the back leads to a delay in blood in the lower part of the body of a woman giving birth, at which her blood pressure may increase, and the baby will begin oxygen starvation. Sometimes this can even provoke premature placental abruption.

Some doctors, speaking of the classification of postures, distinguish eight basic species, which in turn are divided into several subspecies. However, these postures should be applied on time and to the place. And modern women largely lost the ability to listen to their intuition during childbirth.

Here, of course, you will need the help of doctors. A woman, first of all, must find out the methods of giving birth in "her" maternity home, or a doctor who will give birth.

It is necessary to find out whether experiments are allowed with the positions of the body during battles and in which positions it is possible to go for a walk.

When the doctor gives "good" for the active behavior of the mother in childbirth, she must balance her movements with the recommendations and observations of the doctor.

However, there are a number of universal recommendations for childbirth with the active participation of women.

Types of labor



With weak and normal labor, pain can be reduced in the lower abdomen, if you walk around the ward, stopping from time to time and leaning on the table with your chest. These same movements can also perform the task of mild stimulation with sluggish current births.

The stimulating effect is strengthened when sitting on the maternity chair, on the knees of the assistant, as well as all standing and hanging positions. In some cases, fading fights are "untwisted", alternating between walking and squatting between fights and squatting during a fight.

If there is a desire to doze between contractions, apply the position of reclining, lying on your stomach, on your side, on your knees, leaning in front of the chair, bed or assistant.

It is possible to alleviate painful "lumbar" fights with a knee-elbow position, when movements are made in the pelvis, reminiscent of rocking. There is also a massage of the lower back.

However, if you are, for example, under a dropper and forced to lie on your back, a pillow or a cushion should be placed under your waist.

When the bend is fixed back of the cervix, and it is observed more often than other forms of bends, then lying on your back for some time still worth it. This can be consulted with a doctor who leads the birth.

But the position during childbirth "on the haunches" is characterized by a decrease in the length of the birth canal, and this facilitates the child's advancement over them.
