It’s not the #cervix, but the application of the head to the cervix and the angle of the head in the #pelvis that needs addressing. A posterior #labor is different than an anterior labor. The position of a “sunny-side up baby,” one facing the front, is called occiput posterior. A posterior baby fits less easily than the anterior baby. A posterior baby’s head seems bigger because of the angle it’s in when in the pelvis. There are signals that may help you determine whether a baby is in the occipital posterior position. These signals may also show up in labors where the baby has to get symmetrical for labor to progress, whether or not the long labor is caused by a posterior position. These labor patterns describe labors for women with round or triangular pelvis. #birthisbeautiful #pregnancy #doulalife #fayettevillencdoula #earthbound #heavensent #babyplanning #birthdoula
