So interesting to read all the variety!
1. In a squat holding onto a birth bar on a hospital bed. This was my longest pushing at 45 minutes, but it was induced and I had an epidural (what they call a "walking" epidural so I was still able to be up on my legs).
2. On hands and knees on the floor, pushing the baby out in 5 minutes.
3. In the birth tub, in a floating squat as I held my husband's hands at the edge of the tub. It was a BIG tub. This one took 10 minutes to push out. It seemed like hours, because I had to work harder at it. I think that's because the water took some of the pressure of gravity off me.
