Kaya Birthing Stools. this looks like the best thing so far.

This is a technique to use only occasionally in labor. Walcher's Position is used to engage a baby that is high, not really in the pelvis yet, yet contractions are regular and strong. The baby may be stuck at the brim or inlet of the pelvis. I don't know if it works in pregnancy, before labor.

"Remember this, for it is as true and true gets: Your body is not a lemon. You are not a machine. The Creator is not a careless mechanic. Human female bodies have the same potential to give birth well as aardvarks, lions, rhinoceri, elephants, moose, and water buffalo. Even if it has not been your habit throughout your life so far, I recommend that you learn to think positively about your body." — Ina May Gaskin (Ina May's Guide to Childbirth) Wise Women, Doula Inspiration, Midwife, Favorite Quotes, Baby, Births, Princesses Inspiration, Ina May Gaskin, America Owe
