Re: Intensity of pushing

1st was hardest,i pushed for 30 mins when they told me to. i was laying on my back

2nd also laying on my back. i felt like it was time since the epi didnt kick in, they called the dr in and the dr did massage while the baby crowned. i pushed 11 mins

3rd i was in a birth tub on my knees hugging dh. it literally was like doing 2 kegels and she slipped right out. i think positioning makes a huge difference i dont understand why they make women lay on their backs when other positions are more effective
