Pregnancy Facts

Updated: Sep 27, 2019

Did you know...... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 💡The pressure of the baby’s head on the perineum as it moves down the birth canal, reduces circulation which helps to numb the area ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 💡The cells of the perineum have more elasticity than any other part of the body and are flooded with the hormone relaxin to enable them to fan open and let the baby pass through ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 💡As a baby descends, the head is actually designed to reduce in size as the plates in the skull overlap and the baby’s head becomes more oval shaped ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 💡The mothers pelvic bones soften and widen even more so if you were in a squatting or upright position ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 💡The uterus changes once the baby is born and immediately begins to contract down, starting the journey of going back to being a small, hollow, pear shaped organ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 💡Given the right cocktail of hormones, the right mental, physical and emotional state of the mother, the long muscles of the uterus pull open the round muscles until the passage way is large enough for the baby to be born. (understanding the muscles of the uterus are the krooks of hypnobirthing) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 💡What’s amazing is that even if a woman was unconscious or in a coma, the muscles of the uterus will work for her no matter what and her baby will be born. Crazy!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For even more information to help you prepare for birth in the best possible way, book your hypnobirthing course now. Link in bio ☝🏻
