Décubitus dorsal versus décubitus latéral durant la 2e phase du travail

Abstract : In this paper, we discuss two birthing positions: the supine and lateral decubitus. Our objective was to demonstrate the value of lateral decubitus position during the second phase of expulsion. For this, we performed a retrospective case-control comparison. Key criteria were studied midwifery. We compared patients who gave birth in side lying in Colombes maternity ward with patients who have given birth in the supine position in Port Royal maternity ward. 419 files were investigated. In our work, the lateral position for the delivery appears as a protector of the perineum. It does not seem to have a negative influence on the welfare fetal, neonatal, or the rate of postpartum hemorrhage. We found a similar duration of expulsive efforts at both positions for multiparous but often increased in primiparous. The lateral position appears to be a good alternative to the traditional position of delivery. This position responds to the concerns of health professionals by combining surveillance, security, analgesia and respect of physiology.
