Last week I attended a workshop on Spinning Babies. Spinning Babies is about attaining and maintaining the best position for your baby before and during labor.
There are many factors that impact baby's position and several things mom can do even before labor starts to help baby get into position.
Probably the simplest is having proper posture. Seems simple but our furniture is designed for lounging! Moms (actually we all) need to remember to sit on our "sit bones". *Check yourself out- feel the bony butt bones- sit on them!*
To be sure you are sitting with proper posture, do the belly button test. If a light were shining out of your belly button (or where it used to be) where does it point? Up? Not proper posture. Your belly button should shine straight across or pointing down.
Point that belly button!!
