Their job is to protect your bum from tearing. So they want you in the most convenient position for them. You need to start talking to the OB to find out what they are ok with. And speak up...my midwife had a preference but I told her I wanted to squat and that's what I did. She wanted to make me have a success birth experience and was flexible. We tried on my back and side for one push the first time, but I wanted to squat. And with 3 pushes both times the baby came out. I recommend it.
