Successful Vaginal Delivery of Macrosomia Baby with Pelvic Mobilization/Manual Therapies

Posted by on Oct 1, 2014 in Pregnancy

Our lovely patient was determined to have a natural vaginal delivery although her obstetrician told her she would likely need a caesarean (C-section). Fetal macrosomia is defined as a fetus weighing more than 8 lbs,13 ounces. Our patient’s baby determined weight was over 10 lbs. Her mother had birthed 2 macrosomia babies (one of them was her) vaginally so perhaps she could too! Why not give her every opportunity to have the birthing experience she desires? After several sessions aligning her pelvis and maximizing her pelvic mobility through various manual therapies, she delivered her baby vaginally with a mild tear of her perineum. We are so truly happy for them!
