Uma fotografia que mostra a ossatura de uma gestante se movendo antes do parto deixou a internet maravilhada. Publicada em janeiro através do Instagram, a foto evoca o que há de mais mágico no corpo humano.
North Dallas Doula Associates, perfil responsável pela publicação, explica o que ocorre com a ossatura feminina pouco antes do parto.
“O losango de Michaelis (às vezes chamado de quadrilátero de Michaelis) é uma área em forma de pipa que inclui as três vértebras inferiores da coluna vertebral, o sacro e o ligamento que desce da base do crânio até o sacro. Essa área óssea em forma triangular se move para trás durante o segundo estágio do trabalho de parto e, à medida que se move para trás, empurra as asas do íleon para fora, aumentando o diâmetro da pelve.”
Our bodies are AMAZING!!! I love witnessing its majesty! This second time mom had a precipitous/rapid birth and used chiropractic care throughout her pregnancy & postpartum @cafeoflifedallas “The rhombus of Michaelis (sometimes called the quadrilateral of Michaelis) is a kite-shaped area that includes the three lower lumber vertebrae, the sacrum and that long ligament which reaches down from the base of the scull 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. We know it’s happening when the woman’s hands reach upwards (to find something to hold onto, her head goes back and her back arches. It’s what Sheila Kitzinger (1993) was talking about when she recorded Jamaican midwives saying the baby will not be born ‘till the woman opens her back’. I’m sure that is what they mean by the ‘opening of the back’. “The reason that the woman’s arms go up is to find something to hold onto as her pelvis is going to become destabilised. This happens as part of physiological second stage; it’s an integral part of an active normal birth. If you’re going to have a normal birth you need to allow the rhombus of Michaelis to move backwards to give the baby the maximum amount of space to turn his shoulders in. Although the rhombus appears high in the pelvis and the lower lumbar spine when it moves backwards, it has the effect of opening the outlet as well. “When women are leaning forward, upright, or on their hands and knees, you will see a lump appear on their back, at and below waist level. It’s much higher up than you might think; you don’t look for it near her buttocks, you look for it near her waist.
