Do wider hips necessarily mean childbirth would be easier? Or is it just a rumor?

I think what matters is how the inside of your hip bones are shaped. A college roommate of mine had sizable hips and she was told she would have a very difficult time giving birth.

But then I have small/average hips and was also told I'd have a tough time, but it took me 11 hours, which is about average. Actually it would have been faster if they didn't slow me down because the cord was over his shoulder.

So I'm saying that other factors matter more than hip size.

Yeah. There's supposed to be some ratio of hips to some other part, maybe? But there are 50 bazillion factors to consider.

I do know your hips change position or shape when you give birth

They do. They open up during birth. Mine were permanently bigger after my son was born.

I have quite small hips, and had no problems shooting my daughter out like a rocket, so to speak. I was hoping my hips would stay wide, I thought I looked better with the wider hips, but I didn't get to keep them. they went right back down, so I look like a pencil with boobs. but in any case, the size of your hips does not have that much to do with ease of child birth, it has more to do with whether they separate enough when it is time for the baby to come. there are also other factors involved, including the size of the baby.

I believe that is just a rumor, but I wouldn't know for sure.

False. It all depends on internal structure.

I don't think it can be stated with 100% accuracy.

I was told that I had wide hips and yet my daughter got stuck in my birth canel and they couldn't get her out of me so I had to have a c-section.

I have an hourglass shape and sizable hips that are good for grabbing, but my daughter got stuck on my pelvic bone and even had a mark on her forehead from where she got stuck. It faded quickly, but for several months, whenever she got mad, it'd get red again. I have wide hips and a narrow pelvic opening. I had two C-sections.

I'm just curious - did your daughter not turn her head when she was supposed to? I'm told that I didn't turn my head when I was born and I was stuck on my mom's pelvic bones too. Because I was born when dinosaurs roamed the earth, they pushed me back inside and adjusted my head for me, something they never do now. I had a bruise where the forehead meets the nose I'm told.

Coincidentally, my husband was a face presentation and after his poor mother labored for 36 hours with him, he also was pushed back inside for a head adjustment. His mom reports that he practically shot out after that.

true, but hips generally displace themselves to accommodate for birth. my sister who has no hips at all suddently had some after they shifted for the birth, and then went back to normal after a few months. If they didnt, vaginal birth would be difficult
