How will I know when to push?
Guess what, you don’t actually have to push. Your body knows exactly what to do!
If you were pregnant and in a coma, and your baby was ready to be born, your baby would be born whether you intended to ‘push’ them out or not.
It’s a bit like holding in a giant post-Christmas dinner poo, you get to a certain point and despite the fact no one has coached you through it, you still get that poop out, right? We were never taught how to push a poo out, our instincts take over and our bodies will naturally contract to expel the poop 💩
(Sorry if this is a bit much poo talk but if you’re pregnant and reading this, you’ll be surprised by how much interest you will take in your baby’s poo once they’re here so it’s a little bit of pre baby poop prep for you 😄)
If you take your time, truly tune into your baby, your body and your rhythm, with each surge (wave, contraction – whatever your preferred language is) you’ll both be moving and working together to bring your baby earth side.
Trust in your instincts. They are there for a reason, do what feels right for you 🧡
