It is well known that vertical positions have benefits during labour and birth, with a reduction in obstetrical interventions (Lawrence et al 2013, Gupta et al 2017). However, the biomechanical and physiological factors which act as 'active ingredients' and that contribute to the effectiveness of upright, as compared to horizontal, positions have not been assessed in a systematic manner.
We hypothesised that squatting, compared with other positions, could have biomechanical consequences resulting in an increase in pelvic dimension and intrauterine pressure (IUP) which could, in turn, have an impact on birth outcomes.
The aim of this review is to investigate whether the physiological and biomechanical mechanisms of the squatting position on pelvic dimensions and IUP can facilitate spontaneous vaginal birth.
