Optimum Foetal Positioning

Create space for your baby with optimum foetal positioning, a one-to-one session with movements using the Spinning Babies approach to birth. How many of us have been told we have to have extra scans as our babies are presenting breech? And that it baby doesn’t turn before a certain time, we will have to look at caesarean section? How do we avoid intervention in our pregnancy and birth?

If you are already planning a caesarean section we can use these techniques to reduce back ache from a tilted womb due to tight ligaments. Having baby in optimum foetal position also means that you feel most comfortable throughout your pregnancy.

Happy Soles-112The majority of us have out of line pelvises, meaning we have back aches, sciatica, and poor posture. If our pelvis is out of line during pregnancy, however, this has consequences for baby in that they will always find the most comfortable position to lay in. Three ligaments are responsible for supporting the womb in pregnancy, and should these be tight, the womb may lie off centre. The baby may not therefore be comfortable engaging the head in preparation for birth, This may mean that you go overdue, or that your labour starts but contractions are not regular.


Practising the forward leaning inversion in class

Forward-leaning Inversion
The goal of repeating the Forward-Leaning Inversion (FLI) every day is to release tight to twisted uterine ligaments to achieve the full capacity of the womb. Give baby this room to aim the crown of their head first and more easily turn themselves around in labor.

  • For both head down and breech babies
  • For either anterior or posterior babies
  • Dramatic results for babies lying sideways (Transverse Lie) after 30 weeks gestation

Optimum foetal positioning sessions will take you through the ‘three sisters’, inviting baby into the pelvis, releasing the uteral-sacral ligament to alleviate backache, side-lying release of uterine ligaments and stretching all the muscles of the pelvic floor to prepare for childbirth. All these exercises allow baby to engage, descend and rotate. All these actions are required for vaginal childbirth. Sessions are recommended weekly, to lengthen the supporting muscles and ligaments, making them more supple, and therefore more strong and supportive.

We will also go through some yoga moves and stretching sequences that you can do daily in-between sessions.

After 30 weeks, belly mapping is optional, time permitting.

Weekly sessions are recommended until your due date, then daily sessions are suggested.
