Birthing Position

Video: Hospital Birth

Although this is not a particularly traumatic hospital birth, any time a woman is on her back, she is positioning for the benefit of the hospital staff, not her baby or herself. Delivering a baby on your back (supine) is always the worst position for childbirth (other than standing on your head).

  1. Now that was really upsetting video, but very informative as well i think all the pregnant ladies should keep in mind that laying on back can be very bad idea. The ladies who have already done so in past can be better example for it.Its a must watch for all the women who are going to give birth to a baby.

  5. there in the subtitles of this page is some important text : “LOW RISK WOMEN”
    for what I know in this field , from what I’ve heard, year after year there are more and more women that are HIGH RISK WOMEN. They can’t birth naturaly because they don’t have the good body constitution for that.
    Those diet regimes and poor quality meals have affected their bodies in a way they can’t birth naturaly.
