Transition was the worst part for me - I really did feel like I couldn't go on. I got frightened at that point as I had no way to compare my labour to anything else and I thought the pain was going to go on forever.

Pushing was scary as I wasn't expecting it to be so intense and primal. It was uncomfortable but a different kind of pain. Ring of fire did hurt but I knew to expect it and it meant baby was nearly here so I coped better with it.

I found the intense pressure just before/as he was crowning to be the most painful and overwhelming.

It's interesting to see everyones experiences. For me it was for maybe about an hour before I started pushing, so I guess it was transition. I had very intense pressure and pain in my lower back. Lying on my back during a contraction was also very painful. I spent most of labour standing and walking. Pushing was hard work but a tremendous relief because it was less painful for me and I could work with it.

DD was back to back but came out facing the right way. She was turned in the birth canal as I was pushing. The most painful bit was getting her shoulders past my coccyx, where she was side on at that point, it felt like my coccyx was shattering into a million pieces over and over again. Once we got past that it was a breeze. No pain relief here either.

Two natural births so far and I'd have to say that the most painful part of both labors was when I hit transition. I have small babies (6lb) and they've both come out in one push so I didn't feel any crowning pain but those contractions from 7cm to 10cm are killer for me. It's at that point that I feel like I need to have something for pain but it's too late because I pretty much hit 7cm and I'm pushing within an hour.

Both times I found the whole thing painful - obviously - but the most painful part for me was dealing with the stitches afterwards, I spent days crying from the pain with my second

Not pushing was the worst, the MW was convinced I couldn't possibly be ready to push as it was too quick for a FTM so told me not to, then when she realised I was fully dilated I had to hold it till they could get me to a delivery room! After holding then back pushing was a huge relief

I'd tell them to get lost if they told me not to push when I wanted to, lol.

Mine was the stitches being done afterwards for 2 tears.

I used 4 cylinders of G&A over 5 hours of my labour

I used a full other cylinder in the time it took to do the stitches!! It was like the local anaesthetic had no effect whatsoever!
