Fetal Malpositions often begin with an imbalance in the mother's pelvis. While this is not always true, it is often true. I now believe that the imbalance causes the pain and the malposition. It's not the malposition that begins the pain! Treating the cause of the pain often solves the fetal malposition as well, since then baby can often slip into an improved, or even optimal, fetal position. Try these activities to help turn a posterior baby.
Babies get into the best position they can with the space they have. An imbalance reduces the amount of space available to the baby.
Over the years, women have contacted me about both malpositions and pain reported they also have pain or significant discomfort somewhere in the pelvis and/or lower back. Learning from others and seeing the results.
Some answers to pelvic pain can be addressed by a variety of modalities and exercises.

The Forward-leaning inversion, standing sacral release and Pelvic Floor (sidelying) release suggested on this website were all learned from Carol Phillips, DC. I've seen amazing results and relief from pain, even resolution from pain.
These are good to combine with Chiropractic if desired or if one or the other modality isn't "holding."
