Conclusions
- Maternal position during the first stage of labor: a systematic review

Adoption of the upright position or ambulation during first stage of labor may be safe, but considering the available evidence and its consistency, it cannot be recommended as an effective intervention to reduce duration of the first stage of labor.

Additional well-designed studies are warranted to further clarify the effectiveness of maternal position on the duration of labor and other outcomes.
