I swear by over the back of a hospital bed or on all fours while biting a washer or towel.

thanks everyone for your suggestions! it gives me good ideas what to try. my last two births they wouldn't let me get up and i was lying down the whole 14-15 hours and in the end didn't dilate past 3cms both times.. then they said i needed a c/section and whisked me away. so obviously i'll be trying more upright etc this time. see how i go!!

I gave birth on my back all three times after active labours. First time took a while, my middi kept trying to get me to get off the bed but I kept climbing back up on to the bed! lol 2nd and 3rd time I was on the bed but I breathed my 2nd out in 7 minutes and third came out so quick his head was born before anyone knew he was even coming.
My midwife raised the back of the bed for me so I had help from gravity and despite planning a water birth three times when it came to that very last stage I just found the bed the most comfortable place for me.

Sorry haven't had an epi, biting a washer while pushing is my pain relief. Helps me to take the focus off the pain and not use energy screaming. It was either a washer or DH arm!!!
