You may get a case of the shakes 1
During childbirth, it’s normal for a woman to shake or tremble. This is caused by your hormones as your body dilates completely. It is mostly intense in women who have a natural birth and can still continue after delivery whether you’ve had a C-section or not.
You might poop 2
The most dreaded accident that can occur during childbirth is pooping. As you go through the contractions, you will feel a pressure on your rectum which is associated with the feeling of needing to poop. You may feel embarrassed if this happens to you, but you should know that it's totally normal!
Peeing is common 3
Besides pooping, you'll want to pee! Peeing is also normal during the birthing process as the baby gets closer to its escape. I mean, you can't help all the fluids you're releasing. After all ARE are pushing a human being out of your hoo-ha!
You may tear 5
Vaginal tearing is a common occurrence in women who give natural births. This is expected if you're giving birth to a larger than normal baby and deliver it all natural. You are treated with stitches and it may leave you with discomfort and pain for some months.
The placenta may remain inside you 6
In some cases, the baby is out but the placenta remains inside you. This could be due to not enough contractions during delivery. In this case, the placenta needs some intervention. The doctor will have to reach inside with their hand to remove it from the uterine wall.
Your baby may poop inside you 7
Gross, right? When your baby poops inside you it is considered your infant's first bowel movement. Usually it isn't an issue in the delivery room if this occurs, but it can pose as a risk if your baby inhales it into his or her system before doctors clean them up.
The umbilical cord may be messy 8
Finally, your baby is out! Now the next step is your doctor will have to cut the cord and sometimes that experience may not be what you expect. You might get splattered with the umbilical cord blood as it is being cut, but don't freak out.
The baby may flip! 9
A breech birth happens when the infant flips over into a different position not suitable for a proper delivery. At this point the mom may need a C-section to avoid any further complications.
