DOUBLE HIP SQUEEZE for Labour

DOUBLE HIP SQUEEZE for Labour πŸ‘πŸΌβ£
⁣⁣⁣.
This is a technique I teach my prenatal physio clients and their partners to try during contractions in labour to help with comfort.⁣
⁣⁣⁣
⁣Apply firm pressure on both sides of the hips at different levels of the pelvis (top vs bottom). Depending where baby is at the time within the pelvis – one spot might feel better than another.⁣
⁣
πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈA possible reason why this might help – looking at the pelvis picture πŸ‘†πŸΌ- if you press the bottom of the pelvis it could help open the top (pelvic inlet) more near the start at labour vs pressing at the top of the pelvis to help the bottom of the pelvis (pelvic outlet) for later in labour.πŸ‘πŸΌβ£
⁣
You can use hip squeezes in any labour positions your hips are available (swipe πŸ‘‰πŸΌ for some examples)⁣⁣.⁣
⁣⁣⁣
Don’t wait until labour day to give this technique a try, practice this while you’re still pregnant and remember- it may or may not help on labour day. It’s one of many comfort measures to try and see what your body prefers.⁣
