An Orgasmic Birth? Um, Yeah, I'll Have What She's Having!

With the due date of my baby steadily creeping up. I've been inundated with checking things off my MUST DO/ MUST HAVE list. Found a pediatrician I'm in love with. Check. Been accumulating cloth diapers and accessories. Check. Secured a midwife and birthing center. Check. If you read my previous post Apparently Midwife is a Bad Word, then you know my husband CJ and I are planning to go as natural a route a possible with Baby Bean's arrival. That means ideally there will be no hospitalization, doctors, forceps, vacuums, IV drips or needles i.e. EPIDURALS involved. 
I've had plenty of needles in my life for allergy shots and blood tests etc, but is that not the scariest f*#king thing you've ever seen?
Now keep in mind this is my first kid- and I'm still a bit weary. I'm not gonna lie. Since I've not had the experience of squeezing something the size of a small watermelon out of a hole the size of a lemon I'm a touch nervous. I do not have ANY reference whatsoever to the pain that will most likely be involved. 

But I really want to go the no drug route for my sake and Baby Bean's. I have no doubt that it will be better for both of us. So I plan to get my relaxation, meditation, and "Hypnobirthing" on... See, I've been doing my research. Which is actually why I had to write about this as soon as I heard about it: Orgasmic Births! (I kid you not.)

As far as I know- none of my friends have had one- at least they haven't shared if they did. But there are women out there who would swear on a stack of O Magazines that they've experienced the sensation of an orgasm while giving birth. That may creep some people out, but grow up- it's not sexual, just as breast feeding your little one ISN'T sexual. 

From what I gather it's just this warm tingling feeling that permeates your whole body and releases the "feel good" chemicals that come with the "Big O". But since it's never happened to me  (the orgasmic birth not the Big O), but fingers crossed it does, I don't know if it's fact or fiction. But IF there is even the slightest possibility that I can feel that much pleasure from this magical but otherwise extremely uncomfortable experience- sign me up 'cause I'm ALL for it. Who the heck wouldn't be?!


  1. Yeah I've heard of this myself. Though i've also heard about women prepping for delivery, not the labor part, with.....and i am not kidding here, swear that doing the ah...personal pleasure deed, helps with birthing. I'm not kidding! I researched it because my Ex is very into the natural birthing process (he was born that way himself) because he wasn't born in a hospital but in the woods. But i think it would be the best thing ever to have one! I totally will join the line for having an orgasm during birthing.

    I do have to say that I wasn't scared at all. I peace. I mean i freaked out at first when i started getting really sick and was puking constantly 18hrs before birthing. But once i got to the hospital (and the nearly 3hrs waiting to get into just triage) that i kind of came to a peaceful resolution to not be worried. Once they told me i was in labor, my only concern was whether i was far along enough for my baby to survive. I was in light labor for about 30hrs but only the intense i need to push started about half an hour before she came. Everyone else was freaked out during but I seriously felt calm and relaxed. It was the most wonderful experience and the only pain i felt was them sewing me up after i tore. Even her head didn't hurt that much (also probably cause my bp spiked to 180/ i think i was pretty light headed). Honestly, i swear not knowing was the best thing ever. I had no expectations and it was not stressful.

    Read Ina May's Guide to Childbirth. Made me pushing that watermelon out a whole lost easier on my brain.
    p.s Giving birth feels so frickn' cool.

  3. I watched that movie, too - isn't it gross? I like orgasms as much as the next person, but to think of that during birth creeps me out beyond belief! I do applaud you aiming for a drug-free birth and using Hypnobabies (both of which I'm doing as well). How far along are you now?

  4. So.... a few years later. How'd it go?
