WHAT IS THIS PRODUCT?
When women in late pregnancy lie supine, the uterus compresses the inferior vena cava and aorta. This reduces maternal cardiac output, causing supine hypo-tension, and affects placental blood flow.
Gravity helps displace the uterus to alleviate this aortocaval compression. An effective way of assisting uterine displacement is through the use of the Pregnancy Pelvic Tilt Wedge under the patient’s right hip.
