I did all the preparation for a hypnobirthing (relaxing, calm. No pushing, etc). I was in a very natural-child-birth supportive hospital, in active labor for 7 hours. Prior to that I was in early labor for 50 hours (surges ranging from 10 to 4 minutes apart). For the first 4 hours of active labor my midwife was okay with me changing positions and locations. I went from bed to tub to bathroom to tub to bed. The last two hours she suggested I push because he was in the birth...
I pushed as hard as I could for 2 hours. I was supposed to do the hypnobirthing technique of breathing the baby down but that was not working. My baby was born on thursday. My contractions began on Tuesday. It was a long labor!
