Last night, I had to do a (written) pelvimetry assignment about different types of pelvises for my midwifery school coursework.
All I remember of pelvimetry myself is the hospital-based midwife I initially saw with my second baby performing a pelvic exam and not explaining to me what she was planning to do before she did it. It was pretty uncomfortable and (in my opinion) unnecessary considering that I had already successfully birthed an almost eight pound baby.
Have you found pelvimetry to be valuable in your midwifery practice? How has it helped? What do you do to make it more pleasant?
