Amazing Photo Of Woman Giving Birth That Shows  Her Bones Moving

The North Dallas Doulas shared an amazing photo of a woman giving birth that shows her bones moving and stretching to birth new life.

Childbirth is incredible in itself and highlights just how amazing a woman’s body is. Now, an incredible photo of a woman’s bones moving during birth has left us all in awe. This happened during the childbirth of a mother in a Louisiana hospital named Tangi Birth Services. The North Dallas doulas posted an amazing photo of a woman giving birth that shows her bones moving during birth. 

Bones Moving During Birth, Captured on Camera

In the picture (see below), the birthing mother could be seen surrounded by health care specialists with her back to the camera. Look at her lower back closely and you would notice a bone at the centre of her lower back pushing against her skin. 

The picture of the birthing mother has since gone viral on the internet. And mothers and others alike have praised the “Amazing” strength of the human body. The mothers among the commenters were in awe and it proved to be a moment of understanding. Some took it to be the reason why their backbones hurt after giving birth. While others simply praised the power and strength the human body possesses. 

“And that dear ladies is why our backbones hurt after giving birth… who knew?” one commented.

“Pictures like this make me teary-eyed,” another Instagram user wrote. “The support she has looks incredible with everyone intently watching and letting mama do work HER way.”

“Honestly keep going back to look at this… our bodies are amazing!” another added. “I remember that impulse to pull on something too…so crazy!!!”

The next person simply wrote: “How amazing are our bodies?”

How did this happen?

In the caption of the photo posted by Tangi Birth Services, they tried to give a breakdown of the process that led to the bone sticking out during childbirth.

The caption explained: “The rhombus of Michaelis (sometimes called the quadrilateral of Michaelis) is a kite-shaped area that includes the three lower lumbar vertebrae, the sacrum and that long ligament which reaches down from the base of the skull to the sacrum”

“This wedge-shaped area of bone moves backwards during the second stage of labour and as it moves back it pushes the wings of the ilea out, increasing the diameters of the pelvis.”

To break it down further, during childbirth women need to “allow the rhombus of Michaelis to move back to give the baby the maximum amount of space to turn his shoulders in.”

During childbirth, your body, strong as it may be, goes through a lot. There are concerns about the emotional aspect of post-delivery too. So get as much help as you can after childbirth, including seeing medical and psychological experts if it comes to it.
