For many women, a supported squat position can be a great position to labor and birth in. It both widens the diameter of the pelvic outlet and allows gravity to assist in the descent of the baby.

Women can lean back against a seated birthing partner, lean against a birthing bar, or sit on a birthing stool to achieve this position. The sacrum and coccyx can expand in this position.

Moving into the squatting position can be helpful when the baby is slow to descend. If the descent of the baby is very rapid there can be tearing of the perineum, therefore sometimes moving out of the squat to the side-lying at the end of the pushing phase can slow the descent down, giving the perineum a chance to elongate.

There is no one perfect position. So move frequently and choose positions that feel good and that your baby responds to favorably.
