Floppy face, floppy fanny
Floppy face, floppy fanny.
Your face and jaw are connected to your vagina and pelvis in more ways than one, so relaxing your face, relaxes your vagina.
Keep the jaw soft and relaxed actually relaxes your pelvic floor. So sighing out, yawning, singing, blubbering the lips and making low sounds (like ahhhh, ooohhhh) can all help your jaw to unclench and release, and your pelvic floor to release too. Get your birth partner to keep reminding you to do this in your labour. As heard recently ‘floppy face, floppy fanny’!!
Your vagina can stretch 10 x its size!
reduces muscle tension, more relaxed and better birthing experience
increases chances of tearing, interventions, instrumental birth and caesarean births
Relax, soft, open, calm and floppy face.
