Accompaniment by the midwives to the women in labor with epidural analgesia to simulate the movements they would perform in a natural birth. The vertical positions, the ambulation and the freedom of movements decrease the time of delivery, the rates of instrumentation and its consequences, giving the woman control and greater satisfaction about her birth process. The pelvic asymmetries achieved with frequent postural changes in women with epidural analgesia, who can not move by themselves, favor the evolution of labor, thus increasing the rate of eutocic deliveries. The midwife is the ideal figure to support during childbirth and accompany pregnant women in this process.
