Pregnancy Back Pain & Acid Reflux Sleeping Position: The Semi Fowler Technique
Use the Semi Fowler Technique in pregnancy to reduce back pain, help with acid reflux, and improve resting and sleeping.
If you’re new to Acid Professor we focus on not just useless advice but actually doing something about it. We look at how to stop heartburn within 48 hours rather than just treating the symptoms constantly.
Pregnant women often have difficulty sleeping. The reasons are numerous but in this video we address lack of sleep due to positioning. Pillowing techniques can be a useful tool to help decrease discomfort. In this video the semi fowlers technique is shown to help reduce discomfort while sleeping and can also help if the pregnant mom is experiencing acid reflux when laying on her back.

hi there my name is Giselle Valen one of the armed to use here at absolute physio care I’ve had the pleasure of being able to treat several pregnant women since working here unfortunately one of the main concerns that pregnant women have is that they can’t get comfortable at home they love the massage but trying to sleep or just do the everyday activities not super easy so today I want to show you three different techniques that pregnant one can do at home so they’re nice and comfortable so first up I’m going to start off with two pillow waiting physicians for when you’re going to bed so here’s the first one here called semi fowler so you need about four pillows for this guy so you’re gonna have two at the front here and then you’re gonna cross it over making an H and then you want one pillow for underneath the knees and you want one fellow generally an extra tiny little filler towel just to support the head now highlighted here what she’s going to do is she wants to make sure that the tips of her shoulder blades are hitting the base of that pillow there and this is for the youth so which part of my shoulders goes here just at the edge here okay well that’s a base of this top cannot address they’re all meeting Jess okay comfortable yes so it’s really nice about this is that a lot of pregnant women may experience heartburn or acid reflux when you leave flat on their back this you still get the sensation of lying on your back but you don’t get the heartburn or the acid reflux which is quite nice well it feels good on my back because of the pillows underneath and my neck feels supported and I feel a little bit elevated up and that’s what we want you..
