Positions for Labor

There are several different positions you may find helpful during your labor. One popular position calls for you to relax on all fours by leaning forward into a pile of pillows or a bean bag. This gives your baby as much room as possible in the pelvis. Your partner can massage your back.

If you are having back labor, these two positions may help you shift the weight of the baby off your back. In the first one, you kneel on all fours with your elbows and forearms on the floor and you knees wide do that your abdomen is hanging between them. You can rock forward and backward in this position. The second one has you on the floor on your hands and knees with your arms and legs wide apart. Keep the small of your back straight, not hollow.

If you prefer to stand, you my find that leaning back into your partner for support, letting him support your weight is another position to try.
