I was just wondering if I will know how to push and with what muscles. What was your first experience with birthing a baby like in terms of pushing "properly"? Does it really just come naturally or do you have to be told how? I just worry I won't know how to get the baby out! (Can you tell I am getting close to my due date!? Getting paranoid!).

Our labour tub was delivered yesterday and it's all set up, I am so excited!!

Most times you'll know. You'll feel this incredible amount of pressure and you just NEED to push.

Awwww. For me it did come naturally, you want to push and feel it there. Hope it goes quickly for you, those last few weeks seemed like forever!!
