Upright, forward, open (legs) and hypnobirthing allows the process of birth in the most efficient and helpful way for mother and baby. ⠀⠀ One size does not fit all when it comes to our own unique body and birth is no different. ⠀⠀ What works for one woman another will absolutely hate. ⠀⠀ But each and every one of us can find (at least) one upright position we feel the most comfortable at that given time. If you have a water birth, kneeling in the water is a great way to keep in an upright position. Kneeling on the bed and holding on to the back of the bed is another good one. Kneeling on the floor leaning on a birth ball is also very effective.
