    I found laying on the floor begging for drugs and crying to go home worked for me. Lol.

    Ermm... Actually I had the saline injections in my back because I was so freaking out from pain and pressure that I was so close to just giving up.

    That helped so much, it wasn't exactly "natural" but it wasn't a drug. The other thing that helped was finally being able to push and get it over with.

    Also sitting on the toilet pushing, I wasn't really ready to push but I had so much pressure downwards I thought I needed to poop and sitting on the toilet "relaxing" sort of helped take off the "pressure" in a way. Also I hated my midwife (not her fault, I hated everyone) so I was hiding in the bathroom so people would stop talking to me.

    I suppose sitting in a birthing chair would probably do the same thing position wise, but for me it was also the I guess seeking out a safe "cave" instinct. The midwife eventually convinced me to come out that I had to come back and push out a baby.

    With my first I was already in a haze of gas and pethidine so I don't really remember to well, probably went crazy on the gas. With DS I didn't cope very well, I started gas and got a shot of pethidine during transition and just kept telling DH I couldn't do it (who very logically and annoyingly tried to reason with me by asking I wanted to do about it ). DD2 I was in the bath and made groaning type noises and thought crazy thoughts like if I pretend I need to push maybe they will let me get out of the bath because being in the bath was starting to annoy me. DD3 I hit the the chair that I was leaning over, half-heartedly cried, screamed like a mad women, asked for drugs only to take one look at the gas after they went to all the trouble of setting it up and declare I didn't want it as I felt sick and plotted how to get them to make everything stop and let me go home.
    I never really recognised I was in transition at the time with any of my births though, maybe a little bit with DD3 but she was a very fast birth so I didn't think I could be there already.

    I only had/recognised transition with my dd (#2) because I got really scared & wanted to give up. after a few minutes of asking DH to do it for me, I remembered that this was the end and I just needed to go with what my body wanted to do. dd was born 10 mins later!

    I think surrendering and not fighting it was the best thing to do. let your body go, and let your mind stay confident

    I don't remember 100% but I remember being sick, and clinging onto my sick bag, and focusing my energy on getting mad at DH for not fanning me correctly with the manila folder he had :P (he was whinging about needing to pee, and how it hurt, kind of broke the tension!)

    I had just got to hospital when I was in transition with my second birth (first was an induction). I zoned in on the music that was playing and clearly remember thinking I wanted to just go home, but then told myself I had to stay and just go with what my body was doing so I could meet my daughter. The music helped a lot. It gave me something to really focus on.
