Interesting Pilot Study

Click here to read the whole report from Science & Sensibility, but in a nutshell, researchers did a small study on a “modified” labor room — the main difference in the rooms was taking out the standard bed with a double-mattress on the floor in the corner. Women randomly assigned to these rooms reported less time in bed, compared to women in the standard rooms, although the actual spontaneous vaginal birth rate was no better. Still, it augurs well for a trial that may be large enough to be conclusive.

  1. Interesting. I find that many women do gravitate to the bed. Many do not want to walk around.
