Just for fun…
The ideal position for a baby to be born is with his/her head down and his/her back towards the mother’s front (anterior baby). The most common position that needs correcting is when the baby’s back is towards the mother’s back which is called a “posterior baby.” We can sometimes use a Rebozo to turn the baby around. This is a very safe procedure and the mother often says it feels good, too.
Here are some of the exercises we recommend for our clients after birth. If you would like to check out one of the videos mentioned in the first YouTube clip, we have them in our library for our clients. Just ask us and we will be happy to loan them to you.

This is a TV commercial we ran for our business a few years ago. Our business name was “Gentle Beginnings” before we opened the birth center. Those are Beth Overton’s grandchildren in the commercial and Jessica is Beth’s daughter. Jessica is also a midwife. She works now for the San Antonio Birth Center because she lives in San Antonio.
