For me it's the best bit..... It means its nearly over , ha ha ha! Really though I didn't even feel myself tear as the contractions and pushing consumes you so much . It's the hardest your body is ever going to work . It feels like extreme pressure mixed with stinging but when that warm bundle slides out after you have pushed out the head and then the rest of that little body comes out its an amazing feeling filled with achievement and love it's all consuming .... The pushing is hard but the contractions as vile as they are really help.
