I came across this video today while looking for a good visual for how to use a squat bar while pushing during labor.  The video provides a number of upright pushing positions to keep women off their backs and reminds us of the benefits of spontaneous pushing. Explore your options and don’t be afraid to try different positions during labor. Your partner, doula, and the medical staff can help remind you to try different labor pushing positions and can physically support you.
