Despite this, it’s interesting to determine if the activities offered by Spinning Babies truly help a fetus assume a cephalic presentation.
Walking may be a great activity to help the baby move into the right position. According to Spinning Babies, it lengthens the Psoas muscle, which functions to connect the upper body to the lower half; the inner part to the outer part. This helps attain muscle balance that can help with better fetal positioning and descent.
While there are scarce references between the psoas muscle and better fetal descent, walking is, in no doubt, a great exercise for pregnant women.
However, keep in mind that any movement you make should be gentle. Avoid going for long periods of time or doing anything that makes you feel unwell, dizzy, or nauseous. Finally, keep an eye on how tired you’re getting so that you don’t overdo it with exercise or activity—this is not good for you and your baby!
