The things no one tells you no.6:
A real motivator when pushing
Mumofsix` featured blog about things no one tells you.
`I thought I would, every now and then,
add a little bit of info that
took me by surprise with my first baby.`
My mood while writing this blog: Ok
I found having a mirror at the foot of the bed a real motivator when pushing. I had this with my second baby and there after (not in the bath though). As soon as I saw the first little tufts of hair I got my second wind and I was determined after that to get that baby out.

anxiousmothertobe - Tuesday, 2 Mar lool Bezzi- I am like you even though this is my first but if they actually showed me I'd probably freak out at seeing my vagina doing the things it's going to be doing.
krystasappleseed - Monday, 26 Jan I agree. seeing the tufts of hair with the mirror and then getting to touch the head was a great modivator. i also had 2 great nurses and one awesome hubby to seal the deal too.
bezzi44 - Wednesday, 5 Nov I didn't want any part of seeing what was going on down there! They offered me a mirror and I said HECK NO! I'm sure it is a motivater but wasn't for me. =)
Jo-Mama - Tuesday, 15 Jul I found that reaching down and touching my baby's head really motivating too, even more than the mirror. I finally understood what was really going on once I touched her. It was so amazing.
