Post subject: Stupid thought but..
Anyone ever think "How the hell does a baby get out a hole that small"
I know I have given birth before but it really freaks me out, its the only thing that I'm scared of, contractions I can get my head around but the baby coming out is a mystery. I want to be a midwife one day too but I wince every time I see a vaginal birth! Trying to de-sensitise myself to it but it doesnt seem to be working
How the hell does everything go back to normal? Perhaps if i understood it I wouldnt be so scared.. any tips on overcoming this ridiculous fear..?

the miracle of female bodies? sorry i dont have an answer. ive often thought it myself.. maybe if we knew it would be easier to explain to children.. charlie thought my tummy would pop and the baby would come out and now he thinks shes coming out of my bottom like a big poo... >< haha x

See the baby coming down the birth canal doesnt bother me its the head crowning lol it always looks like its all going to burst open.. mind you ive done it once before so hopefully wont sting so much this time.. just really scared of tearing again, dont want to have stitches again as its worse than the birth itself
Does anyone know if rubbing olive oil into my foof for a few months would help? xx
