quick question, are those just really big hemrhoids or is that what the anus normally looks like when pushing?

Mom of a 7 yr old, 4 yr old, and 1 yr old. Wow. How did that happen?

those are hemorrhoids. although when women push, the rectum can get really large and open.

WOOHOO! thanks for posting!

my partner said, "oh, so it's a little distressed?"

me:

him: ... pooping?

me: actually it's common for breech babies to poop during birth, because --

him: oh, it gets squeezed out of them?

me:



(at least that's what i remember from what i've read... correct me if i'm wrong ~ :LOL )

I wanted to share a link to another double footling home birth.


Down to towards the middle of the page you will see a picture of the little feet sticking out. There is two stories of the same birth. One is told by the mother, who is also a MD, and IBCLC. The other story is told by the LM who attended this birth.

Amazing stories!!! Absolutly Amazing!
