Pregnant people have important decisions to make before and during the birthing process. The purpose of this webinar is to examine the consequences of eight common labour and birthing space practices, and our choice points along the way during the birth journey.
The literature submits that each of eight labour and delivery interventions is likely to increase perineal trauma to the maternal pelvic floor. These practices also promote the formation of scar tissue during the wound healing process at the abdomen and perineum. Whether scar tissue resolves successfully or induces pain is a matter of the amount of inflammation present in these tissues as they undergo the phases of wound healing. Learn more about this process and what you can do in your professional practice or as an informed parent to deal with these common birth outcomes.
