Giving birth has nothing to do with pushing. It has nothing to do with contractions. It has nothing to do with pain.
Giving birth has everything to do with giving.
In this final sacrosanct act of pregnancy, all is set aside as the mother does whatever it takes to give her baby life. In every birth it requires different sacrifices. But the beauty of it, every time, is that the mother was willing to do it.
Pushing does not make a mother.
