Has anyone heard that before? A couple weeks ago I visited a CNM (until I can figure out who I am using for my HB). I was telling the CNM that I have had quick, easy-breezy kind of labors (not that they didn't hurt but you know...).
She said that was not surprising since I am tall and thin. Has anyone ever heard that before? On a side note I am very average build....5'7 and wear about a size 7/8...not exactly tall or thin?? Though I do have a long torso.
Anyway, I was just wondering if anyone had ever heard of your build leading to a less difficult labor?? In all my reading about labor and birth and reading hundreds of birth stories I had never heard this theory. Anyone else heard this or know it to be true?? This was new to me.
Also, my mom is only 5'4 and definitely "curvier" than I am. She had 6 kids and her labors were much like mine...fairly short and easy. So, I thought maybe it was more genetics?? We always joked that we had baby-making hips.
