"Push through your bottom" the midwife said
As I lay panting on the bed
"Push, push, push! I can feel the head!"
"SO CAN I!" was my reply...
"Now push, now wait....
no more pushing until you completely dilate."
"Now push, then pant in measured spurts
And I know Mrs Kent your vagina hurts
You should listen to me, I am wiser and older
Must you bite your husband on the shoulder?"
"Push, push, push, just one more try!"
There was a rip, and a slip, and a baby's cry
A girl, a daughter!
A hug, and then
"I am never doing that again."
