I forgot allll I learned at class when I was in labor. But I know I did in the nose out the mouth while closing my eyes and shaking my head back n forth lol it sounds silly but the head part for some reason helped. While pushing my mother in law was behind me I'd push shed push my back help me push more. If it helped idk that either. I know I started pushing at 1045 my son was out by 11 so it wasn't so bad. Everyone's different though. I'm on my second I pray it goes just like my first
