Excruciating pain = No filter. Can you blame them? Pushing out a baby is no walk in the park. I am in awe of the women who can do it without an epidural because I am sure I could not!
  1. Fuuuuuuuck!!!
    This was a private practice patient with a nice blow out and pedicured toes. Loved her for it!
  2. Where is the anesthesiologist???
    This is why I tell my patients to get an epidural at 6-8 cm dilation. Labor and Delivery can get crazy and your anesthesiologist may become tied up in a C-section or another epidural placement. Don't wait until it's too late!
  3. I can't do it!!!
    Our response: Yes, you can! You are so strong!!
  4. No, I don't want to touch the baby's head!!
    Sometimes for motivation, we ask the patient if she wants to reach down and touch the top of the baby's head that's a little bit out. This women was not into it at all.
  5. Can't you just pull the baby out??
    We did not. She ultimately did it on her own! ☺️
  6. Get it out of me!!!!

  7. Why won't he come out?!?
    Said exasperatedly once by this wonderful, quiet powerhouse who was pushing so hard that everyone in the room was silently pushing along with her.
