Baby Positioning Techniques

There is much more to baby positioning than whether your baby is head up or head down!

During early labour your baby will need to rotate to the optimal position in order for labour to progress smoothly. In fact a large part of your labour will be devoted to your baby rotating. For some babies that rotation can take longer than others due to a variety of factors. These techniques can be used in pregnancy and early labour to optimise your baby’s chance of easier rotation and hence have the potential to shorten and ease your labour, helping to prevent medical intervention during birth.

I have practiced and perfected these skills over many years as an Active Birth teacher and doula and have seen first-hand the positive results that can be achieved.

These techniques are highly recommended for all pregnant women in preparation for birth and include myofascial release, rebozo, pelvic opening and much more, and are particularly effective for babies in breech or back-to-back positions.

A session lasts an hour and costs £40. You can come alone or with your partner (who can also learn some techniqes!). I am also available for consultation once labour has begun.

A little feedback

We were very fortunate to have the support of Patricia during our pregnancy. We particularly liked the practical and evidence based approach and her boundless wisdom and warmth were very much appreciated. It gave me faith in my ability to give birth naturally with little or no medical intervention."
