We talk a lot about optimal fetal positioning in the birth world. This little baby’s brow was pressed down into her mama’s pelvis during labor so she came out with a funny little bulge on her forehead. Generally, babies are positioned with the crown of their heads entering the pelvis first. When they tuck their chins, they are positioned optimally so that their heads can mold to fit the pelvis. Because Isla presented with her forehead rather than the crown of her head, her mama had to work extra hard to deliver her. A little maternal positioning help from her amazing doula, Gina of the sown seed, got things moving and baby was born shortly afterwards.
Welcome to the world, sweet girl! We’re so glad you’re here!
