Belly mapping is a way that moms can tell what position their baby is in, during the last couple months of pregnancy. This is helpful because it can alert you to potential complications that may arise during childbirth, which could lead to a complicated labor or a C-section. Often it is impossible for your doctor to know what position the baby is in by doing an internal examination– an ultrasound would be required. However, belly mapping provides a way to figure it out on your own! Then, your doula can help you to change the baby’s position.
