So I stopped pushing ( I did a calmbirth course so I was able to focus elsewhere) had a few contrations then had one big contraction and Ifelt him come down and head out. Took MW by surprise. She was in the middle of putting her gloves on but it was great. None of that push , push , push , puuussshhhhh! He then got shoulder distocia (which they'd been concerned about anyway as they knew he was big) so that's was another thing entirely. Still no tearing though.
    Your body will just do it. Women in comas or who are unconscious will still birth a baby with no pushing on their part. Your body will just do it as long as there is no physical complications ( obstructed labor issues).
    If I was having another one I'd choose the no push method.
    It's your body's natural expulsive reflex that does it. Read all about it in my hypnobirthing book, which is the theory behind 'breathing' your baby out. Sounds yuck, but It's a bit like having a poo, if all is well it just slides out!

    I wish I'd been told that all the stuff I read that stuck in my mind from here and google are the extremes, not the norms. I was absolutely petrified of things id read such as epi's not working, the numbness traveling upwards and stopping breathing, losing so much blood quickly I nearly died...I don't know why I didn't trust that this stuff hadn't happened to anyone I know.

    My c section birth was text book, fine...which is probably why I haven't commented on here about it I suppose!
