A midwife friend of mine posted yesterday that she attended a birth in which the mama pushed for (wait for it)...
.... seven hours!
Yup, that's right - seven hours of active second-stage labor. What a woman. And what a midwife! That is a powerful couple of women there - the woman for doing it, and the midwife for being patient instead of throwing in the towel and transporting. You can pretty much guess with accuracy that if this woman had birthed in hospital, she would have been sectioned (unless she had a beyond-awesome doctor or hospital midwife).
Baby and mother are doing beautifully. Congratulations!!
