It took a couple of pushes for me to figure out the correct way to push. You push like the baby is coming out of your bum instead of your vagina! Once I figured that out, I found the pushing to be the easiest part of the process! I pushed for 40 minutes before Aubrielle was born.


Some moms have a hard time feeling and therefore do not push effectively with an epidural. If you are having this problem the hospital staff should be able to bring in a mirror and if you look in the mirror while pushing you will be able to see what kind of pushing works and what doesn't. The mirror may seem a little weird at first but it is a wonderful tool in learning how to push effectively.
