Each of my hospital births I was confined to bed. At home, I move around a lot. This last one I walked a lot, stopping to lean forward over counters or furniture during cx. Birthed her kneeling on the floor and leaning over the foot of our bed. Baby before that, I mostly labored on the toilet... was so darn comfy there, only got up because DH finally convinced me not to have the baby on the toilet! Moved to bedroom and half-squatted, half-kneeled on the floor for delivery. Baby before that, first birth at home, I was all over the place; tried the tub, the shower, the bed, the yard... knelt on the floor to push him out.
