How to push

I asked the midwife to turn down the epidural a couple of hours before I started pushing. I felt EVERY contraction while pushing. Honestly though, It was more painful NOT TO PUSH during the contractions! 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.
