    Wish I'd know this for my first two. So much energy was wasted!
    ???? Really?? Then why does everyone push and some end up with tears and episiotomies?? Obviously it's possible as it happened to you, so I'm not questioning your experience, but surely that is the tiny, tiny, tiny minority? Anyone else heard this?

    I didn't know that I could have gotten so zoned out without any drugs just by my body doing its own thing to go through the contractions. It felt like I was in my own little world for some hours, no idea of time or what was going on around me.

    I think it's called a 'no push labor'. I'd heard of it and had Googled but forgot all about it in labor. When the time came I pushed for a bit but MW said that he was not low enough even though I was fully dilated. 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.

    Happened to me with my 4th- was in the birth pool and when she started crowning I stopped actually pushing and tried to let things stretch, panting through the contraction and her head just slipped out before I could push again! No tearing or grazing!

    He + Me = dd1 (July 2007), dd2 (July 2010), dd3 (August 2012), dd4 (May 2014)
    Embrace the chaos

    I didn't push at all for dd2. She just came. It was amazing. I wasn't even tired or anything after, my uterus just did it's job.

    I've only had to push one of my five out and that was only two big pushes with my epidural birth. The rest got themselves out lol
