Does a baby with its arm next to it's head lead to a slower labor?
I know that it "can" slow down decent through the birth canal, but was curious about the actual labor. Might it also cause mom to go past due as maybe baby's head is not pressing down fully on cervix?
Just curious, my 2nd was born waving "HI!" at her daddy and my labor was slower with her than with my first, but slower in a good way, I preferred it and it certainly wasn't long or anything, 7 hours active including birth.
Ok, and one more thing, maybe this was why she was so late? Had I not done the small castor oil dose, is it possible she may have worked her hand out and I would have gone into labor w/her in a more "normal" position?
