There's no perfect position for labor, but frequent changes of position during labor can help you relax and stay in control of the pain. As your labor progresses, try various positions until you find one that helps you feel comfortable.
Standing or walking can help labor gain momentum, especially in the early stages. Lean on your partner for support during contractions — or wrap your arms around your partner's neck and start swaying, as though you were slow dancing. This is also a good position for a back rub.
