I mentioned that a midwife friend of mine described using a foot-on-a-chair technique to resolve a shoulder dystocia during a homebirth. This was after they had already tried the Gaskin manuever (or, the woman had already been on her hands and knees. Not sure if she was flipped from lithotomy to hands and knees, which is what I understand the Gaskin maneuver to be).
I nicknamed it “the Captain Morgan maneuver”, much to my commenters’ glee. Has anyone else heard of or experienced an upright delivery with a foot elevated?
ETA: Jill said it first, here in her birth story.
