I know this wasn’t guaranteed in Calmbirth but I remember you mentioning that some women don’t experience any pain. And that’s exactly what happened to me - yet another reason why I didn’t think I was in labour! I would describe it as ‘intense’ and ‘hard work’ and the surges were intense pressure and I felt like I was going to pop near the end, but I was never in any pain. Even when I was pushing him out, it wasn’t painful. I could feel my body stretching and that’s exactly how I would describe it, but it wasn’t painful at all. Isn’t that amazing!
