Left, A contraction comes on and Raina lifts her abdomen to 

aim her baby's head onto her cervix instead of against her back.

Raina smiles in relief.
One more closer to her baby!

The water feels wonderful...

until another contraction comes.



The water makes the labor quite "do-able."


These pictures may very well be when the baby rotated from a posterior position to the anterior position.





What joy!

Trillium Midwives thank the Curtin Family for sharing their

intimate pictures and

such a special moment in their lives.

Spinning Babies on Sense and Sensibility


Hi Gail, 

I want to say thank you! A first time mother's posterior birth went well [with] a short labor. Membranes ruptured about 8am. Her labor started about 6pm: 3cm dilated; LOP station -1; cervix soft and effaced. 

We did rebozo sifting, sidelying release, abdominal lift and tuck, standing sacral release, Dip the hip, circling on the birth ball, lunge and she birthed at 9.58pm in sidelying position with hands around the husband's neck.

Baby's head showed more molding on the right side. What you taught in the workshop and website made a difference!
