Re: If you had a hospital birth - did they allow pushing while squatting?
Yes, I alternated between using a squatting bar and sitting up leaning to one side. Squatting wasn't as effective and was more tiring so I delivered sitting up. My midwife was great about everything and I probably would have delivered in the tub but I didn't feel like I could move that far :P
