The Well-Rounded Mama: Historical and Traditional Birthing Positions
Although most women envision birth in a semi-reclining or semi-sitting position these days, there are many other possible positions in which to give birth.However, it's always important to point out that there is no one "right" position for laboring or pushing out a baby. All positions have pros and cons. Care providers should encourage women to experiment with different positions and then trust that the woman's body will tell her the right position for her needs. If a woman is not making progress with a certain position, encourage her to try other positions, as these may help the baby move down or turn to help labor progress, but in the end it is the mother who should have the ultimate say in her position. If the traditional semi-reclining or semi-sitting positions feel "right" to you, there is nothing wrong with that. Many babies have been born that way just fine. This is a strong statement about the differences in birthing culture then and now. Squatting Supported Squatting Kneeling Dr.
