Belly mapping empowers a pregnant woman to discover her baby’s position in late pregnancy. This technique can be a fun bonding activity and is often used for proactive childbirth preparation using optimal fetal positioning.
Three steps take mothers from mystery to naming her own baby’s position. A transparency matches the chart of kicks and bulges the mother feels to a fetal drawing. In addition, 100 drawings and photos take the mother and midwife through details of head-down and breech babies. You’ll find tips on noting engagement, on how to help baby engage and how to tell if baby is posterior. There is also a short guide to Spinning Babies and posterior labors.
Gail’s calm approach includes affirmations of trusting birth to make this booklet a joy to share with families in a midwife’s care.
