Additionally, this position encourages the baby to rotate into a more favorable position for delivery.

    Squatting during childbirth is beneficial because it uses gravity to help the baby descend and rotate, making the birthing process easier. Additionally, the partner can support the mother's back and arms, providing comfort and stability. Squatting also widens the pelvic outlet, allowing more space for the baby to pass through.

This position allows for better access to the perineum, making it suitable for procedures such as forceps or vacuum-assisted delivery, extensive episiotomy, and delivery of a breech baby.
