Top 5 Labor Positions - Portland Birth

Something I’ve noticed at a lot of births recently, is the tendency to labor upright. Kneeling, squatting, sitting, standing, when mamas are allowed to listen to their body, they continually choose to be upright.

Here are the top 5 labor positions:

  1. Supported squat (birth partner supports you)
  2. Semi-sitting, QUEEN position
  3. Sitting on the toilet
  4. Side-lying with knee support
  5. Standing and leaning forward on support person

If you’ve given birth before, did you use any of these positions?
