"Pros" and "cons" of vertical childbirth for women and children
Difference between vertical and horizontal genera
To give birth in a horizontal position (lying on your back) is not very convenient for the woman in labor. But this position is most suitable for doctors. They can help in time. This is a tedious process for a woman’s body, the uterus squeezes blood vessels more strongly, and therefore the blood flow can be disturbed. The baby gets less oxygen. The future mother has to put maximum effort to push the fetus.
Being in a vertical position, a woman can take any comfortable posture. The disadvantage is that the process is uncomfortable and time consuming.
Horizontal birth is inevitable in the following cases:
- high risk of bleeding;
- the probability of the umbilical cord loops;
- the woman has a narrow pelvis;
- there are complications;
- the fetus is in the wrong position;
- chronic hypoxia;
- premature birth.
Vertical occur in three stages:
You can move freely, stand, half-sitting; runs faster than horizontal labor.
Poses must be thought out and rehearsed in advance.
