Hands and knees is a good position to labor in
I have heard several things that can help reduce it but for all I know wives tales. No sugar, no MSG, no salt. BUt even if these work they probably won't help so close to the end.
The truest answer to violence is love. The truest answer to death is life. The only prevention for violence is for the heart to have no violence within it. We cannot prevent evil through any system devised by mankind. But we can grapple with evil and defeat it, but only with love—real love.
With my 3rd child, I had an ultrasound at about 18 weeks and was diagnosed with polyhydriamnios. They told me there is some risks involved with the condition, I can't remember all the details. They never told me there was anything that could change it. They monitored me through out with several other ultrasounds. The OB was concerned, but my gp had researched for me and told me that the chances were slim, gave me literature, etc. And that the OB is doing the ultrasounds to cover her butt, so to speak, to prevent any malpractice should something occur.
Long story short, I birthed a 9lb 2 oz baby girl. She had no problems during delivery, and she is now 4 yo, very healthy.
I hope everything is fine for this client of yours.
