CPD Myth or Fact?

It's been said that a woman will not grow a baby she cannot physically birth. In a perfect world this would be true. However, sometimes a woman has a poorly shaped pelvis or a small pelvis that does not allow for a vaginal delivery. This is known as cephalopelvic disproportion or CPD. Thankfully this is not common but many times you will not know if this is true for you until you are in labor. This can also vary from pregnancy to pregnancy. Because one baby cannot be born vaginally does not mean others cannot in the future.

Therefore CPD is a fact, however it is not as common as people think it is.
