A woman kneeling and leaning on pillows or on a birth ball

Kneeling over a chair, ball, or cushions is good for active labor and for when you need to rest, concentrate, or calm yourself. This position is easy to move into and out of when you feel the need to change position. You may find it eases back labor.
