Take an organizing breath—a big sigh as soon as the contraction begins.
Focus your attention.
Slowly inhale through your nose and exhale through your mouth, allowing all your air to flow out with a sigh.
With each exhale, focus on relaxing a different part of your body.
Relax your perineum and pelvic floor. This makes pushing more effective.
Direct your pushing downward. Don't strain. Make some noise. Pushing is hard, physical work.
Make use of your labor companion or Doula. Take encouragement from their words, touch and techniques of support.
Lastly, now you’re at the end reach down to touch your baby's head.
You are a powerful and strong momma!
Well done, you reached your truth and trusted your bodies process!!
Congratulations your baby is #Earthbound. You conquered your birth like a boss! .
