Top tips for active labour

Okay, so as the big moment draws ever closer here are our 5 top tips for active labour:
–       Always remain upright. Gravity is your best friend! Labour is hard enough on the body as it is, why not get the help we can with gravity by remaining in upright positions. Your body will push the baby down into the pelvis but if we stay in upright positions then gravity will help us so our body doesn’t need to work as hard!

Packing your hospital bag

First thing’s first – it’s a great idea to think about your hospital bag sooner rather than later. Babies do things in their own time and in their own way, with only 1 in 20 arriving on their due date. With this in mind, it’s a great idea to get those bags packed at around 36 weeks. Take it from us and don’t get caught packing your bags whilst in early labour!
