My doula says even though there isn't much textbook evidence she has seen a lot more tears from squatting. I have also read that countries that do squat for birth like China and Brazil squat differently than women in the U.S. Which is where I am. A midwife did warn me going in but the position I took was most comfortable for me all the way around. I don't think I would use it again. My son was only 7.4 pounds. He also came very fast and I was on a higher than average...
i'm trying to figure out why i tore so badly, trying to make some sense of my son's birth. i know i may never know for sure but still there is a nagging feeling behind my birth experience. a longing for questions to be answered and to have some closure already.

short answer is YES! however it is also very challenging at times and i just want to cry. this could possibly be the best thing and the hardest thing ever all in one, at the same time!
9 mos here and dealing with the same thing. you're not alone. the past couple of days have been really good though, so hang in there you may atleast get a break. i'm not fooling myself into thinking this reprieve is permanent but i'll take what i can get.

no real advice just saying I HEAR YA! we've been having sleep issues too! i read The No Cry Sleep Solution recently and was determined to get him on a schedule and sleeping without the boob. NOT WORKING AT ALL! (ok maybe the boob parting a tiny bit) the schedule part did work for like three nights and now it's worse than ever. i keep trying but man he is wearing me out! he is bound and determined to stay up till 11pm right now and there is no coaxing him to sleep,...
