Various Birthing Positions

I came across this article on Science& Sensibility Blog from Lamaze International. The article discuses various birthing positions and their pros/cons.  
"If we limit the discussion of birthing positions to those that can be easily described, classified,  sketched and/or photographed we have quite an array at our disposal:
Sitting variants
Squatting variants (including lap squatting)
Asymmetrical upright positions (standing, sitting or kneeling)

"With so many options available to birthing women why then continue to use a lithotomy / supine /horizontal position?
I highly encourage you to look  for your own answers and do your research. Make your choices which will be best for your and your baby`s  health.
