I wanted some clarification please on fundal height measurement. In my textbook, it says that the fundus immediately after delivery should be midway between the symphisis and umbilicus, after 1 hour 1 cm above and within 12 hrs should be 1+ which I am assuming is below....
Does the plus indicate below the umbilicus? Why would it be midway right after delivery and then move further up 12 instead of further into the pelvis?
Would really appreciate this information!!
Thanks so much.
