Art of the Belly Jiggle
Positions and flow:
A shawl can be used for comfort and to help labor progress simply by doing a gentle belly jiggle. The purpose is to relax the muscles on a deeper level unlocking the fascia and tendons.
From Belly sifting to Belly Binding the shawl might be the magic you're looking for to help support your body and soul.
Lets begin with wrapping your belly while pregnant, giving that lift taking pressure off the lower back, bladder and over all feeling more secure in your body. Learn how to flow from one position to the next, unwinding the tension. Great options for your labor support person to be more involved in guiding your body during labor. In the fourth trimester learn how to use the shawl to support your pelvis as you heal.
