This is always a hard one for me. I feel like I've seen some really beautiful labors get completely F*%#'d with and completely overtaken when the cervix hits 10cm. It's my birth wound too so it hits a passion project in me. If I could change anything about how birth is managed (I have a list, but if I could only pick one) I would change how the birthing phase is handled. You wanna know why? What the American medical system does in the second stage of labor or the birthing phase is complete bullshit and it's not based on physiology.
