#19 Understanding natural pauses in labour and when to wait or when to act.

Join Karen McClay and Dr Marina Weckend as they discuss Marina’s research into the natural pauses of labour and the importance of normalising these plateaus or rest periods.

By seeing these natural pauses as normal fluctuations in labour Marina hopes that we can reduce the time pressures placed on women and birth people during birth and to reduce many of the potentially unnecessary interventions in our current maternity system.
