Re: 10 hours of pushing. Yes, I said pushing. Anyone else go long??
First of all awesome job, mama!! Most people wouldn't make it that long! I have a question, did you start pushing only after you had a STRONG urge to push? I have read that it can really drain the mother's energy to push before a strong urge. Also, I would suggest trying to find a good craniosacral therapist if/when you are pregnant again. It really could be a sacral issue and if so could most likely, easily be corrected with the therapy. If you go to upledger.com, there should be a list of CTs in your area. In my opinion they work better than PT or chiropractors and use very gentle techniques that feel more like gentle massage than an "adjustment" (like with Chiros.)
