Midwifery Today Issue Number 76 (Winter 2005) Posterior Position
Drugs in Labor, Back Issues
Quantity in Basket: none
Code: MT76
Price: $10.00

Theme: Posterior Position

Posterior Position refers to a baby being born facing up, rather than down. When you read this issue, you'll learn how to determine the position of the baby, assist a mother with turning the baby, either during the pregnancy or during birth, or help with the birth when the baby doesn't turn. Posterior babies often cause back labor, so identifying the condition early will help a midwife to assist mom in delivering the baby and avoid damaging medical interventions. This issue also contains interesting accounts of birth in Africa and Mexico, as well as interviews, photos and birth stories.
