|It allows a woman to more easily bring her knees up toward her shoulders to properly position herself for pushing (called the semi-lithotomy position*).|
|* The semi-lithotomy position is the most common position for childbirth. Other positions for labor and delivery exist, please discuss which position you will be using with your caregiver.|
