|Having the doctor there to guide the baby out has definite benefits.
I'd say it's particularly important to listen to your doctor when you've already started pushing & then he says to not push because he could be making sure you don't tear or he might need to remove the cord from around the baby's neck before you push again.
|My doctor told me I had major control this last time I delivered. I just listened to when he said to push, not to push, little push, big push, etc... and I didn't tear at all with this 9lb baby!! No hemorrhoids either!|
Have you considered that listening to your own body will tell you when to push and when not to as well (and perhaps better)? Check out this article written by a MW here on MDC - http://www.midwiferytoday.com/articles/honoring.asp
