What position can I give birth in?

Back Lying

Back lying has long been the favorite position of hospital births in the United States in the 20th century. Lying on your back - feet in stir-ups has been a favorite of physicans because of the ease at which they can assist the delivery. This position is still used in a lot of hospitals if an epidural or spinal anesthesia has been administered or if there is concern for uterine rupture.
