What would you like to do?
Contrary to popular belief, you don't have to push if the baby is not in any distress and there's no rush to get him or her out. Your body will push him/her out for you.

The most common cause of death during child birth, even in developing countries is hemorraging. This can lead to hypovolemic shock, insufficient perfusion of vital organs and …death if not rapidly treated. There are also complications such as vaginal injuries or mothers heart rate, abnormalities. However, if there is a trained professional, this should not lead to death. Usually, this may happen in under developed countries. In developed countries death is rare.. Hope this answers the question. Go to Wikipedia for more information.
Answer By this time, many women won't have much of their hymen left anyway. What is there will tear as the baby is born.
It certainly happens. One might be advised it has been used as a plot device- both past tense and recent past, in a number of Country and Western songs- always handled with re…straint. One example that is fairly obvious is the Elvis opus- Don"t cry Daddy- what gives it away it is a childbirth death and not a divorce or family quarrel are the lines- You still got me and little Tommy ( evidentally the baby) together we"ll find a brand new mommy.. and so it goes. People don"t do songs about non-existent tragedies. think it over. it can happen.
There are a number of causes, during heavy labor- as with any exercise- there are strains on the heart, etc. bleeding can occur. there is also the possibility of blunt force t…rauma from say, vehicular accidents or similar things ( a sickening example was the Sharon Tate homicide) there are a number of causes, and seemingly no cures. Death in Childbirth is NOT by any means a (popular) health problem. Maybe it cannot be prevented or controlled?
The incision of the perineum (area between the vagina and anus) is called an episiotomy. It is done when the head does not pass easily through the vagina or the midwife/obster…trician thinks that you will tear badly, and also during an assisted delivery, such as a forceps or ventouse delivery.
Yes, the cervix dialates during childbirth, all the way up to 10cm.
You will want to push, the body tells you to. It's harder not to push. Also if it takes too long it can get dangerous and end with a c-section.
The uterine walls
I had twins and it took me about 20 pushes
When it's time to push the baby out it's with every contraction unless the midwife says otherwise. It's different for every woman, birth and baby.
What is the average number of pushes a woman does during childbirth if she was only giving birth to only one child?
Well, it depends all on the size of your uterus. It can be anywhere from 5- 30 pushes and it also depends on how fast dilation to 10cm (pushing point).
Active pushing by the mother should not begin until the second phase, since pushing too early can cause the cervix to swell or to tear and bleed.
