Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

Labor position...

0 answers
OK, so I know that most of the common position when in labor and delivering is by having the women on her back, legs spread open. I watched this documentary on women squatting. I learned that it's much easier to give birth because the baby comes out easier. So I went to my walk through at the hospital on Sunday and i learned that they give the choice to squat. I'm a first time mom, 36 weeks, and was wondering if any mom's out there had ever given birth while squatting.
