Do you feel ready to give birth? What if something could help you have a more pleasant birth? There's an app that can help you get there.
Do you think you can't effectively prepare for the pain of childbirth before you experience it? It is true that it is a unique sensation. On the other hand, you can soak up stretching, breathing and exercise techniques in advance that will really be useful when the time comes. This is what the application Birth: the positions that relieve strives to teach us by offering a list of exercises that are easy to consult, which is never refused during all the fuss that is birth.
What is the concept?
The application serves several purposes. First, it offers positions that you might not have thought of otherwise. The creator of the application explains that this is not something new, the positions it offers have been the best ever. According to her, the suspension and other positions are the ones that women instinctively take when there is nothing around during childbirth. These are the best positions to prepare the pelvis and stretch the back. Those arepositions that release pressure and tension in women. It allows her to release the hormonal flow, it connects her to her instincts,” says Isabelle Challut, creator of the application.
There are also tips for making good use of the equipment available in hospitals, according to Isabelle Challut. “I trained nurses in several CSSSs and I was surprised to see that few people know how to use suspension bars. In some hospitals, they are even stored in cupboards. However, they have been integrated into perinatal care for a long time and more than 95% of women give birth in a hospital setting. She also gives tips for using the rest of the equipment that is available to parents, such as the bed and the ball.
Finally, and this is important, the application gives a concrete role to the spouse who can support the mother during childbirth in several positions. Isabelle Challut explains: “The couple is together, it gives security to the woman, her husband feels useful, she sticks to him and they live the experience of giving birth together. The experience is very different for the couple when the spouse has something effective to do during the birth.
The application created by Center Pleine Lune is available in French, English and Spanish. It aims to be a support for couples in the delivery room so that parents can have a positive experience and regain confidence in their ability to give birth.
A more natural pregnancy
Research shows, many medical interventions can be avoided during childbirth when the pregnancy is going well. Over the years, pharmacology and medical remedies have increasingly taken over the birthing scene and undermined the importance of proper positions and an environment conducive to secreting birthing hormones.
The app tries to remedy this by helping parents, and Le Center Pleine Lune trains parents, but also establishments so that they provide calmer, more respectful environments, which do not stimulate the side logic of the mother's brain at a time when her archaic brain must promote the secretion of labor hormones. Who says technology and nature can't go hand in hand?
The creator of this application
The person behind this concept is Isabelle Challut, a very friendly and professional former nurse who has been working in perinatal care for nearly 15 years. It was during her experience with mothers who gave birth in hospitals that she wanted to offer better preparation to couples, which led her to found thee Center Pleine Lune. A true authority in her field, she gradually developed tools that ended up on a DVD for teaching purposes, then in this application which is the result of years of experimentation in the delivery room.
Application alone or in addition to training
The Center Pleine Lune also offers prenatal meeting days to talk about what is going on in the body, to move the pelvis, to understand how childbirth takes place. Isabelle Challut explains all the physiology there so that couples are more ready. The app can be used as a reminder after class to remember what has been practiced.
However, she also confirmed to us that couples have tried the application without taking a course and that already, with the photos, it has changed their experience. They were able to try more variations and build on the suggested positions. It is designed to help couples who are alone in the delivery room and who quickly need support and explanations.
