Congrats, again, Amy! That's a video that needs a Kleenex warning! :

Did he seem to have a shoulder dystocia? I didn't notice how long it took from head to body, but it seemed like perhaps they were concerned? Or was it just the nuchal hand they were working on?

Thanks so much for sharing!!

I'm pretty sure it was the nuchal hand causing the most trouble. I think that's why I progressed so slowly and was pushing for so long. His arm was keeping him from coming down all the way and I think he was somewhat tranverse or asyclintic??? When I finally made the decision to break the water-something I had been hesitating to do- his positioning improved and he was born an hour later.

Incidently my twin sister's HBAC babe also had the nuchal hand thing going. He did have mild shoulder dystocia that was resolved by mama flipping to hands and knees. I think the fact that I was already on hands and knees, plus the arnica, and acupuncture I had done to reduce swelling kept this from happening to me though. (My sister also had major swelling) I never would have thought of labial acupuncture, but am a believer now

My HBAC babe also had a nuchal hand, and my MW assured me that it was absolutely to blame for making labor both longer and harder (including more painful) that it would've been otherwise. I'm praying this next babe learns to put its hands down!

Labial accupuncture?! Definitely not something *I* would've thought of, either! Glad it worked, though! Wow!!
