How long will they let you push?
The length of this stage varies with the position and size of the baby and your ability to push with the contractions. For first-time mothers the average length of pushing is one-to-two hours. In some instances, pushing can last longer than two hours if mother and baby are tolerating it.
Why do hospitals keep the placenta?
“The hospital requires new moms to get a court order to take the placenta from the hospital because it’s considered transporting a organ.” Even if your hospital is agreeable, you may need to make arrangements to take the placenta home long before you and baby head out the door.
How do doctors take out babies?

After the baby’s head is delivered, you can push the rest of the baby’s body out.
