THE LAP DANCE
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.”
