Sex Positions for Pregnancy

Rear Entry (Doggie Style)
This position can be used in any trimester but is particularly good for the end of pregnancy because your belly won't get in the way. You can do this with you on hands and knees, kneeling, laying side by side (spooning) or a standing position. This simply means that the man enters from behind.

This allows for a more shallow penetration which may be more comfortable for you. This may also ease fears from your partner. If you have trouble achieving orgasm in this position, you can also use manual clitoral stimulation.
