“Women with large feet have easy births”

This is the last of the pregnancy myths you might be glad to hear 😂 Now I do have big feet (sigh!) and I did have two straight forward labours but is there really a correlation between your shoe size and giving birth? Believe it or not but there actually was a study carried out that took women’s height, weight and shoe size into account to see if there was any alignment to length of labour 🙄 Surprise surprise, there isn’t!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ There are a number of factors that can play a part in having a more straight forward birth and hypnobirthing is definitely one of those. Having a deep understanding of the physiology of birth, knowing the breathing technique and understanding how to work through each surge definitely played a role in my positive birth stories. Remember also that baby has a say. Baby is on the inside and we’re on the outside so position of the baby will of course play a part aswell. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Keeping active during pregnancy, doing hypnobirthing, pregnancy yoga and when in labour thinking upright and forward will all help you immensely on the big day. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you are pregnant and want to know more about what my hypnobirthing course entails I’d love to hear from you. . . . 📷 @martinamitter
