205: Big Babies and Shoulder Dystocia, with Rachel Reed
If you had or have a baby who is suspected to be big, your provider may have talked about the risk of the shoulders getting stuck, and maybe suggested an earlier induction or even a cesarean. But how often do the shoulders get stuck? What are the risks? Does it happen more to big babies? Are there ways to prevent it, and what can you and your provider do if shoulder dystocia happens? The ever amazing Rachel Reed has answers.
