Fetal Positions for Labor and Start

Proper or Left Occiput Transverse

Illustration by JR Bee, Verywell  


When going through out towards the mom’s proper thigh, the newborn is alleged to be left occiput transverse (LOT). This place is midway between a posterior and anterior place. If the newborn was beforehand in a posterior place (in both route), the LOT place signifies constructive motion towards an anterior place.

When the newborn is going through outward towards the mom’s left thigh, the newborn is alleged to be proper occiput transverse (ROT). Just like the earlier presentation, ROT is midway between a posterior and anterior place. If the newborn was beforehand in a posterior place, ROT is an indication the newborn is making a constructive transfer towards an anterior place.

When a child is within the left occiput transverse place (LOT) or proper occiput transverse (ROT) place throughout labor, it might result in extra ache and a slower development.

Tricks to Scale back Discomfort

There are a number of labor positions a mom can attempt to alleviate ache and encourage the newborn to proceed rotating towards an anterior place, together with:

  • Lunging
  • Pelvic tilts
  • Standing and swaying

A doula, labor nurse, midwife, or physician could produce other options for positions.
