You all thought that there wouldn't be a nifty video today because of my baby carrier/ pictures post. Never fear, I'm not skipping the childbirth ed portion of our day.
The narrarator in this clip points out that women who spend labor in bed report more painful labors than women who are moving around, walking and changing position. That has definitely been my experience with my own births. Sitting up, walking, swaying, moving... just felt better for me. Take note of the one woman who is laying down and goes "Ah, I need to move." She is doing what her body is telling her is best.
