The different positions adopted by women during delivery have been important milestones through the history; some of them are not fully solved. In past years with the development of science, the delivery assistance has been performed in a hospital environment and with a specialized staff and thus, most of western women have their deliveries in the dorsal position, which supposedly allow physician a better control of fetus status securing a safe delivery, mainly to guarantee its wellbeing that is why now we said that the way of deliver has changed, controlled by mobility and verticality, to passivity and flatness. The objective of present paper is to make a review on the main positions of pregnant in labor and the delivery through the history, supported by scientific, historical and cultural criteria where the habit has had a great influence in many parts of the world.
