I'm looking for a birthing position that wont aggravavte SPD.

I've had Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction since 18weeks, I'm now at 36weeks and moving whilst lying down is excruciating. I was wondering if there is a recommended birthing position that wont make this condition worse than it already is.

Answer: Hi, Usually it is a position that you can tolerate is the best position. Some women find standing or lying on the left side is good. Talk to your midwife so that you can plan for the birth and you both know what lies ahead. Best wishes, Alex.
