  • I dont think it will do anything but wear you out...I think you should wait for contractions.

  • You might poop yourself :) Seriously, if baby isn't ready to come, pushing will either do nothing, or hurt you or baby. Best bet, wait for your body to tell you to push.

  • my stepdaughter's mom was told to push before she was ready and it put a hole in my sd's lung. She turned out okay, but pushing before your body and your baby's ready is dangerous.

  • There is an amazing "dance" in labor~ all these things things line up like magic!
    The cervix softens, moves forward, opens, thins.
    The baby gets into position and deep into the birth canal.
    The hormones released by baby-placenta-mom harmonize to get this all in order, plus initiate contractions.

    Intentional, forced, non-instinctive pushing won't help anything now...
