Check out the NY Times for an article on an old practice of putting pregnant women on their hands and knees while in labor to ease the pain of childbirth. Midwives have long recommended the practice to get the baby “into position.” The data seems to indicate that it helps with the pain, but there is no proof that it actually helps get the baby in the right place. This is definitely worth discussing with your OB/GYN.
