It's the pain of your vagina stretching to accommodate a large baby's head coming out of it and it hurts like f**k. Very few women say they don't feel it.

I did not feel a ring of fire the only pain from pushing him out was when I ripped.

It's the burning sensation in your vagina when baby is crowning. Idk but other women but it burned a ton for me.

Its right when the head is exiting the vagina. And yes, most all women feel it. Unless you have an epi.

Its supposed to be a burning sensation when the baby's head is coming out. I never felt it though. I just felt pain not burning.

Honestly maybe I'm in the minority here. I definitely felt it but I think the adrenaline and excitement and everything kinda numbed me from the pain. I didn't think it was all that bad. And all 3 of my births were drug-free.

I didn't feel it because of my epi and I pray this time I won't feel it either. I know it hurts like a b***h!

I don't really remember feeling it, but my daughter came out pretty quickly. lol The only time I felt a little burning was when her shoulders were coming out.

The epidural works better for some than others does it not?

I felt it when I had my son and I had an epi. It wasn't as intense as it was with DD because i had her with no meds, but it still hurt.
