This will help you to tolerate your labor better, and you won't have to try and think of what feels good or helps you cope when you are in a lot of pain. You will already know a lot of positions to try, and you will soon figure out which ones feel best to you. Here are few suggestions of positions.
What helps you relax? Massage, music, deep breathing? You may find that labor is suddenly very intense and that you need to relax to relieve pain or use breathing techniques.

Remember to listen to your body.
