Positions for Childbirth

From kneeling in the tub, to squatting on the floor; from lying on the bed, to standing over the toilet – we’ve helped mothers birth their babies in all sorts of ways!

In general, positions that have you upright and moving your hips and pelvis during contractions will help to bring your baby down.
