Our bodies are AMAZING!!! I love witnessing its majesty! This second time mom had a precipitous/rapid birth and used chiropractic care throughout her pregnancy & postpartum @cafeoflifedallas “The rhombus of Michaelis (sometimes called the quadrilateral of Michaelis) is a kite-shaped area that includes the three lower lumber vertebrae, the sacrum and that long ligament which reaches down from the base of the scull to the sacrum. This wedge-shaped area of bone moves backwards during the second stage of labour and as it moves back it pushes the wings of the ilea out, increasing the diameters of the pelvis. We know it’s happening when the woman’s hands reach upwards (to find something to hold onto, her head goes back and her back arches. It’s what Sheila Kitzinger (1993) was talking about when she recorded Jamaican midwives saying the baby will not be born ‘till the woman opens her back’. I’m sure that is what they mean by the ‘opening of the back’. “The reason that the woman’s arms go up is to find something to hold onto as her pelvis is going to become destabilised. This happens as part of physiological second stage; it’s an integral part of an active normal birth. If you’re going to have a normal birth you need to allow the rhombus of Michaelis to move backwards to give the baby the maximum amount of space to turn his shoulders in. Although the rhombus appears high in the pelvis and the lower lumbar spine when it moves backwards, it has the effect of opening the outlet as well. “When women are leaning forward, upright, or on their hands and knees, you will see a lump appear on their back, at and below waist level. It’s much higher up than you might think; you don’t look for it near her buttocks, you look for it near her waist.

根據《每日郵報》報導,一間位於美國陸伊斯安那州的產後護理中心「Tangi Birth Services」近日在臉書粉專上分享了一張照片,而這張照片最初源自於IG「North Dallas Doulas」,圖中可以看見一名女性正以趴著的姿勢在分娩,一旁還有幾位護理人員,而這名產婦的後背靠近屁股處的皮膚可以很明顯地觀察到一個突起物,就像是長出了一條短短的尾巴一樣,十分神奇。而產後護理中心也在貼文中說明,產婦在進入分娩的第二個階段時,會有一塊骨頭向後移動以增加骨盆的直徑,幫助生產過程更加順利,而這也就是所謂的「背部開口」。

不過大部分的人看到這樣的情況通常都會有些驚恐,不過貼文中也表示這完全是正常現象,主要目的是給與寶寶在腹中有更大的旋轉空間,而且事實上媽媽並不是唯一產生變化的人,寶寶也會為了適應產道大小而進行改變,等同於兩人一起為了寶寶自己的誕生而做出了驚人的努力。
