Title:
How to encourage a woman to remain active in labour
Authors:
Steen, Mary
Abstract:
This article gives an insight into how to encourage a woman to remain active in labour. There is substantial evidence that demonstrates being active during labour is beneficial and a range of different positions can be adopted. Good preparation during pregnancy is essential as this will assist women to become confident and believe in their ability to be active during labour. Ideally, upright positions in first and second stage should be encouraged and the use of props such as a chair, bean bag or birth ball. The impact of water immersion during labour should also be highlighted as an effective birthing option.
