Do you actually feel...


The baby slipping out when you have a vaginal birth? Or are you all spaced out on adrenalin and G & A etc that you dont notice?

I didn't feel my first as I had an epidural. With my second I had him at home with no medications and I felt him come out. It was incredible. I'm planning another homebirth without medications with this baby.

Oh yes you do feel your baby slipping out once you've pushed their head out, its a weird feeling! Like a BIG fish/jelly feeling, sounds crazy I know, but you'll see!!

Agreed! My 1st was epidural and I did not feel it but 2nd was no medication and yes feels like a jellyfish falling out (doesn't hurt at all once the head is gone)

Yes, it's a great feeling because it means you're finally done.

I had an intrathecal, but it was just for 2 hours and wore off just as it was time to push, so I felt him, yes. He came out head and all in one push, so I didn't feel it for long.

You feel it and you feel parts (arms, shoulders, et cetera) flopping out. I'm not even sure what the first floppy feeling was... maybe each floppy feeling was each arm? Was one the head? I don't know... anyway, yes, you feel it. Your attention is very much drawn inward and the baby and what's happening down there is part of your experience.

I didn't mind the pushing part as it felt useful and I could feel baby coming out. It relieved the pain and felt awesome, mainly as it meant the pain was over!

I had an epidural as needed forceps and they thought maybe a c-section, i was gutted that i did not feel him come out (forceps delivery in the end). I almost felt like i cheated labour as i did not feel him come out.
