    I always teach couples to blow your baby out !! First do a deep cleansing breath (Oxygen to your baby) then at the peek of the contraction, Inhale deep then exhale by big blows (like blowing out a candle)….then slow deep breathing to finish. This takes practice but if it is accoplished, the baby will come down faster and with NO TRAUMA!! This is the intention of a WATER BIRTH!!! (I only teach water births) Then the mom will be less tired, and will come back to normal a lot faster then if she puched. Iºve been teaching this for 35yrs. and can confirm that babies come out pink (because they have been oxyginated) and will breath within 2-3 minutes, which is the norm for a water birth!! And, Dr. Sarah Buckley is one of my favorites!!!
