The article provides information on the kneeling delivery in the South America for more than 2000 years ago. According to the authors, this type of childbirth has been preserved in the country among the Tumaco-La Tolita culture. When the Spaniards arrived, the practice had been discontinued but the people left a huge collection of pottery artefacts. In connection, an image of one of those pottery figurines is presented in the article with a man behind the woman giving birth to a child.
