Optimal Fetal Positioning or OFP
TOP 3 for pregnant women: nutrition, exercise AND optimal fetal positioning!
Do you desire an easier, shorter and less painful labor? What woman wouldn’t? Sure you do! Daily exercises and posture are VERY important while you are pregnant. Especially in the 2nd and 3rd trimesters. When I say exercises, yes staying active is important, but I am also referring to “daily balancing activities”. These activities ensure optimal alignment of your womb and pelvis in order to eventually birth your baby. ** Pleaes take time to review the websites below. Very important! OB providers typically do not discuss this.** Malpositioned babies are very common due to our contemporary, sendentary lifestyles. Stay atuned to posture, no reclining on the couch or chair, start mopping your floor on your hands and knees, sit on a birth ball at your desk etc.
