    Nice Printable Guide for Labor Positions

    Did you know that laboring on your back is usually not the most efficient or conducive way to give birth to a baby? Thankfully we have a lot of options for labor and here is a nifty little guide prepared by Mother's Advocate (a lot of great resources on their site as well!) with pictures to demonstrate some of the labor positions women might use in labor.
    “Many women have described their experiences of childbirth as being associated with a
    spiritual uplifting, the power of which they have never previously been aware …
    To such a woman childbirth is a monument of joy within her memory.
    She turns to it in thought to seek again an ecstasy which passed too soon.”

    Useful, aren't they. Good to take with you to doctor's appointments and to the hospital--something your husband/doula/labor coach should be up to speed with too--especially if you're going for a natural, vaginal birth.
