I was recently at a birth where the mama pushed out her OP baby.  OP means posterior! Her will power to have a birth with no interventions, (other than a bit of Gas) was achieved.  I don’t consider Gas to be an intervention or medication

This Mama was given a choice of an episiotomy and a big push – which she said NO!! or  a c-section.  I leaned into her and repeated what the Dr had said, then told her she could have the c-section or she could push this baby out.  She only took a fraction of second to tell us, she “only needed a couple more pushes” – and she was right

3 pushes later we had a beautiful boy – with no episiotomy and better still NO c-section

You could be the next strong woman I meet
