How to Handle Back Labor?

1. Pelvic Rock--A lot
2. Get in the bath tub and use buoyancy to relieve the pressure
3. Ask a nurse, Douala, or midwife how to squeeze the ischial spines at the hip joint to give counter-pressure a truly amazing natural anesthetic
4. Walk to open the pelvic inlet and help the baby move through more rapidly
5. You may want a lower back massage with tennis balls. (This didn't work for me, my back was to sensitive to the pain since the uterus is fastened to the back and my baby was occiput posterior.)
