Thank you for the information. I have had 3 natural births in the hospital and am choosing to have my 4th in a birthing center. Needless to say, a little different. I feel like it's my first all over. All I have ever known is on my back in the hospital bed until it's time to push. So this gives me the confidence to be more present during my labor. Writing it down on a cheat sheet for my husband in case he needs a refresher during :)

This is a really good article. I will probably try all of these. I have went through one natural labor but I’m still nervous for this one. Haha. Thank you so much!!

Side lying is optimal for mons who have had pelvic girdle injuries. Symphasis pubis dysfunction is one where mom really needs to avoid being on her back, as it can cause additional injury. I've birthed 2 of min side lying and they were even faster exits than the 3 previous babies.
