The point about the chin…
Today my inbox pinged and I received a lovely message from Chloe. Little Oscar has arrived. Born at 9.25am, weighing 7lbs 3oz. I am so delighted to hear of the safe arrival of their beautiful son.
For most of her pregnancy Oscar was in the breech position, and an appointment had been been arranged at maternity to have the baby turned.Prior to this, we had organised for her to come and have a cup of tea with me and to practise some relaxation. There is a script in HypnoBirthing® to help turn the baby round into a more favourable position. The success rate of helping babies to turn into a head first position is very high, so I was happy to spend time with Chloe.
The ideal position for a baby in utero is to be head first and to lie with his/her back towards the front of the abdominal wall, with his/her head flexed. Have you noticed that when a baby is born, the chin looks small? The chin is immature so that the head can flex forward easily, allowing the smallest diameter of the head to present, i.e. to come first. Incredible how a baby is perfectly designed to be born, and amazing how a woman is perfectly designed to birth her baby.
Chloe and her man used all the HypnoBirthing® techniques to remain calm and to “Go with the flow.” After Oscar was born they played their relaxation cd and Oscar turned his head towards the music. Simply impressive.
Calm birth. Calm mum. Calm dad. Calm and super chilled out baby. C.o.n.g.r.a.t.u.l.a.t.i.o.n.s!! Annie xx
