Ring of Fire?

Hello Mommies(: ive heard this phrase a few times before and heard that's the worst part of labor; exactly what is that? I'm a FTM and currently 37weeks and plan on doing an all natural birth with no pain meds what-so-ever; also anyone have an all natural birth experience they'd like to share? I wanna be as prepared as possible Lol.

The ring of fire refers to the feeling you get when the babys head starts coming out. And yes it stings and feels like fire. It hurt to push but it hurt worse to stop lol.

Omg yes these ladies are right. It hurts so bad but do not stop pushing it makes it so much worse lol

Contractions were a breeze for me. I went all natural. It was the pushing part that hurt the worst. The ring of fire was horrible. But i pushed the hardest during the burning and she was out after 2 contractions that equaled 8 pushes.
