The Forward Leaning Inversion: Technique That Creates Room in the Lower Uterus
Have you ever heard of forward leaning inversion? This technique can be used during pregnancy and while a woman is in labor. It helps the cervical ligaments stretch and make space for the baby in the lower uterus. Not only does this encourage your baby to get into a better position but it also helps with back pain as well.
Why do the Forward-leaning Inversion in pregnancy?
The Forward-leaning Inversion potentially makes room for a good fetal position by untwisting any ligaments to the lower uterus and cervix that may be wound up from sudden stops or a twisted posture.
Kneeling afterward also allows temporarily lengthened ligaments to align the uterus with the pelvis. The cervix may become less tipped or tight and then be able to let the baby’s head position better, and the cervix to dilate in labor more easily.
This technique may also reduce back pain, hip pain, or tailbone pain. Improved fetal positioning does occur too. It is a very worthwhile activity because simply turning the baby’s head down is a notable achievement in and of itself.
