Low Amniotic Fluid...I don't think so. Why the biophysical profile is a bad idea and why the diagnosis of low amniotic fluid is inaccurate and dangerous as it can lead to unnecessary induction and c-section.

Love this poster! Really helps moms see what the concept of laboring out of the bed looks like. Too bad bed labor is what we see constantly on tv as the norm. A trap that even I myself have fallen into before. It's not normal! Get out of bed and try some of these labor positions you'll be glad you did! =)
If a baby waited until its brain was fully developed before birth, it would be in the womb for nearly two years. By then, its head would be too large to fit through its mother’s pelvis. So there is a ‘trade-off’, which has enabled humans to keep both their large brains and upright posture: we are born with underdeveloped brains. Although we are born with most of our brain cells, the connections between them are not completed until the age of two.
