Has anyone come across a pictoral guide to labor positions? Something that I could print out online and make into a booklet?

I can't remember in which one it is, either "Ina May's Guide to Childbirth," or "Spiritual Midwifery," but one of them has quite a number of drawings of different laboring and pushing positions. They could be easily scanned or photocopied...

Penny Simpkin's The Birth Partner has a wealth of drawings and other resources. The comfort measures from that book are used here in this multi-lingual set of 1 page pamphlets (English version: http://www.attachmentacrosscultures.org/resource/factsheets/comfort/comfort_e.pdf)
