Tips for Shorter Labor

Who wants a shorter labor? EVERY FUTURE MAMA! ​​​​​​​​

4 ways to increase your chances of shorter labor: ​​​​​​​​

1️⃣ Walking everyday- walking triggers the production of oxytocin which helps regulate contractions. ​​​​​​​​

2️⃣ Exercising regularly- squats are the most effective exercise for women who want easier labor. This is because with squats your baby gets ample room in the uterus so it can turn without issues. This helps prevent breech position. Doing squats everyday can open your pelvic outlet by up to 10%. ​​​​​​​​

3️⃣ Proper nutrition- eating balanced nutritious meals everyday is essential to having a healthy baby and a healthy mother. Did you know researchers found that eating 6 dates daily starting 30 days before delivery date can be beneficial? Dates increase the odds of spontaneous labor, shorten the first phase of labor, and cause the cervix to dilate more than non-date eaters. ​​​​​​​​

4️⃣ Chiropractic- going to the chiropractor while pregnant reduces the chances of difficult labor. Getting adjusted helps reduce pain and aligns the pelvis allowing for as smooth a labor as possible! ​​​​​​​​
