3 Birthing ball position 
4 The squatting position
5 Lying on your side position

1  The sitting position 
You may want to sit down when you feel the baby's weight. It can be on the toilet, birthing chair, or spreading your legs in a labour position to relieve the pressure on your pelvis. It also helps in relaxing the perineum to help reduce perineal tear. 

2 The hands and knees position 
This position is for you to get down onto your hands and knees, either on the bed, floor or mat. It is also known as the all-fours position. It takes the pressure off the spine easing back pain and may help boost baby's oxygen lev

3 Birthing ball positions 
This position can move the baby into a favourable birthing position. Birthing ball positions can encourage dilation and move the baby deeper into the pelvis. It provides support while you shift around. You can use a birthing ball in several ways, some women sit, rock or lean their upper bodies on it when in a squatting or kneeling position. This can be done while your doctor / Midwife monitors you with either wireless fetal monitors or tell limit you on how far you can move.

 4  The squatting position 
Squatting can be done against a wall or with the support of a chair or partner. This position gives the baby room to manoeuvre as they head towards the birth canal and help open the pelvis

5 Lying on your side position 
This is one of the best position for labour when you need comfort and rest. It can help the baby move into the ready position. Side-lying can ease you of the pain of labour,you can use a peanut-shaped birthing ball between your laps to help you and get the baby to descend and rotate.
