"Dancing, walking, activities with physiotherapy ball and squats, are part of the patient's verticalization, which greatly favours labour. Increasingly we are trying to implement humanized measures to improve care for pregnant women, "says the obstetrician gynaecologist.
Sharing one of his videos on Instagram, he informed followers:
"You come to work and your patient goes into labour! She asks for the music, we invent the choreography at the time so that the exercise helps the childbirth, and the result: beautiful normal childbirth on a humanized birthright!
