Not bad at all. Contractions are the worst part for me. I also hate delivering the placenta.
I didn't even know my 3rd sons head was out until i got frustrated and said he was too big to come out mw was like no love, his head is out just a few more little pushes
Ive done all my births with just gas and air.

Really not a big deal. It feels burny and stretchy (like an 'Indian burn' if you've ever had someone do that to you). My husband said that I said, 'ouch!' but that was it. I also had a 2nd degree tear and had a completely natural home birth. Getting the stitches for the small tear wasn't pleasant, but crowning was fine and over very quickly.

I've had 2 babies with no pain relief and I honestly didn't feel the ring of fire...I was absolutely dreading at as I had heard all about it, all I felt was a huge urge to push..no pain whilst pushing.

I felt it with my first, but not my second. I birthed my second in a standing position, which may have helped.

It was painful and really did feel like it was burning! But it was short lived. Honestly your body kind of takes over and pushes for you, so its over quickly.

I had a natural birth in hospital with my 3rd, and a natural home birth with my 4th. The ring of fire is NOT that bad. The contractions, in my opinion, are worse. The ring of fire is so short lived, and it's a HUGE relief when the head comes out, that you forget about it immediately -- at least I did.

In the birthing pool it was more of a relief than pain, it wasn't nice, it was painful but it was also kina relieving... strange

I just had a second birth with gas and air. The contractions were also the worst for me too. I remember being surprised at a slight circle of warmth. In my head I hoped it was this so called ring of fire because it was an easy feeling.
