Get­ting into po­si­tion

With your birth part­ner sit­ting on a chair in front of you, kneel on cush­ions on the floor, legs apart, and grip your part­ner’s arms to help you brace dur­ing a con­trac­tion. You can rest your head on your part­ner’s lap be­tween con­trac­tions.

How does it work?

“As your body is up­right, grav­ity will help speed up the de­liv­ery, while kneel­ing will take any strain off your legs,” says Megan. “Your part­ner can also ease back pain by mas­sag­ing your back or shoul­ders.”
