: You have GOT to be kidding me! <grabs crotch and runs away
My MIL had six children and knocked herself out with the ether everytime so she was unconscious during and after the births. This was 1952-1962. I know she had an episiotomy every time, but I don't think she knows if they used forceps or not.
BTW, with my 2nd baby I didn't even really have to push my body was a machine and really doin' it and yes, I'm a modern woman.
