How Should My Baby Be Positioned For Labor?

How should my baby be positioned for labor?

Ideally, your little one will be head down by the time you go into labor and will come out facing your back. Her head will duck as she descends through the birth canal, so she’ll come out crown-first. (Hence the cone-head look that new babies tend to sport.) This position makes for the easiest, most streamlined delivery.
