Shoulder dystocia occured with my wife during labor which is typically occurs in babies over 8lbs. Its when the head comes out and the baby shoulders get stuck behind the pelvic bones resulting in an obstetric emergency.

Basically the head comes out like a turtle and the wall of the vagina can wrap and strangle the kid. In addition, when the drs. And nurses try to rotate the baby they can break the collar bone or arm and rip the braxial plexus off from the neck resulting in limited motion of the arms.

This is very uncommon and making sure your dr is well trained along with an attached NICU can always bring assurance.

Our baby girl did not have any broken bones or damaged nerves as she has all arm movement but did stay in NICU as a result.

I wish her dr would have told her about this risk. They said my wife might have a small pelvis and need to have a c section in future pregnancies.

She was 41 weeks and the baby was 9lb 4 0z i know, HEALTHY baby! Its suspected that larger babies are more at risk for this emergency occurring.

In retrospect, I wish the OB would have looked closely at how big the baby was and induced her at her due date or before.

From what I’ve read, having the mom move to a hands and knees position can greatly help dislodge the shoulder fwiw

Homestretch I’m at almost 37 weeks. I feel like between yesterday and today- I grew so much it’s impacting my ability to find comfort dramatically.

Thoughts on asking employer if I can WFH during my 2nd and 3rd trimester? My doc said he could write a note to employer noting that it's my request, but I don't want my employer to frown at this.
