Download and printout a handmade handout or poster showing suggestions for being mindful in pregnancy so we can help create space, balance and flexibility in our bodies, and give our babies the best chance of moving into the ideal position for them. Download with a license for birth workers, doulas, hypnobirthing teachers, prenatal yoga teachers, antenatal educators and midwives to print to share and use with pregnant women, birth partners and clients.
The best position for most babies baby to be in ready for birth is considered to be head down, facing your back (occupit anterior). In this position, baby’s head and neck are flexed and their chin is tucked into their chest, which means the narrowest part of the head presses on the cervix, helping it to open. If baby is in a back-to-back position (occiput posterior) they can’t tuck their chin in as easily, which may make getting through the pelvis more awkward.
Our bodies weren't designed to spend lots of time slouching on sofas and leaning back in car seats - and instead would have been mostly active and upright - so we can be mindful during pregnancy to give our babies the best chance of moving into the ideal position for them.
