Jing Huang, Yu Zang, Li-Hua Ren, Feng-Juan Li, & Hong Lu (2019). A review and comparison of common maternal positions during the second-stage of labor. International Journal of Nursing Sciences, 6(4), 460-467.
The second-stage of labor is the most stressful part of childbirth process and the proper maternal position during this period is paramount for women’s safe vaginal birth. Midwives play a pivotal role in managing maternal positions during the second-stage of labor. However, there is limited evidence to support an ideal maternal position during the second-stage of labor. Further, the difference between different maternal positions might not be apparent. This paper aims to review and compare the benefits and risks of common maternal positions during the second-stage of labor, thereby to provide midwives evidence-based practical guidelines.
