What is Orgasmic Birth? Can a woman actually have an actual orgasm during the birth of her child? I know this may sound so crazy to some people at first. Trust me when I heard this yesterday I was actually quite speechless myself. One of my cousins just had a baby girl a week before Christmas named Rianna Ray who weighted 9 pounds 8 ounces. At my sisters house yesterday we had a family gathering to celebrate Christmas together and welcome the new baby to our family. We got on the subject about the baby’s delivery and the labor my cousin went through. All of a sudden she just said “While Rianna was coming out I had 2 orgasms it was a very pleasurable delivery”. My first thought was “Is this girl out of her mind”? How the heck can a baby being delivered be pleasurable? The last thing that came to mind was an orgasm at birth what? I have never heard of a woman having an orgasm while delivering a baby. So this was extremely new for me to hear.
Yes, when a woman has an orgasm some of us may breathe deeply, moan, stretch, groan, and even yell or scream. So what happens with an orgasm during birth? My cousin told me the labor pains were painful, but at some points she was having pleasure. I asked her “Did you have any medications for your labor pain”? She told me “No, she wanted her delivery to be pleasurable and natural”. The doctor told my cousin that an orgasmic birth usually can happen when the Mothers are unmedicated.
Now I know when I was in labor the pains were so severe that sex was not even close to being on my mind. All the long hours of labor there was no way I was even considering having anybody touch me let alone have an orgasm. To me that’s like taking away from the beautiful process of having a baby. I mean think about moments before your baby is going arrive your concentrating on having an orgasm. What happens if the baby comes out and you’re in orgasm land feeling pleasure? Here a new life is being born and you just missed it because of that darn orgasm. I said to my cousin “Did it make the baby being delivered a sexual experience instead of a beautiful moment of a baby being delivered”? She replied “Well, it was kind of both in a way. At first I was in so much pain, but when the baby started coming down the canal the feelings were so similar to when my husbands penis goes into my vagina it gave me pleasure”. I really didn’t know what to say after she told me that.
Ok milk and cookies go together, sex and condoms go together, but orgasm and birth not really sure. I guess it could happen when the baby hits the woman’s G-spot during a vaginal birth. Then once the G-spot is stimulated a woman starts to have muscles spasms, and fluid starts to be released. A woman’s body is very sensitive. There are many different types of orgasms like G-spot, multiple orgasms, blended orgasm, tension orgasm, pressure orgasm, fantasy orgasm, vaginal orgasm, and extended orgasm. I just can’t see an orgasm being associated with birth.
An orgasm is a beautiful, sensual, and pleasurable feeling. Child-birth is a beautiful process but man oh man very painful. If everyone associated an orgasm feeling with birth not many women would be having sex that’s for sure. I told my cousin delivering a baby you have a lot of stretching and tearing it’s not like you have a penis going in and out you have a baby coming out so therefore no penetration. After that so many thoughts were in the back of my head like how did she feel with the doctor being there?, Did she miss the birth of this child due to the orgasm?, If she told me and my family about this how many more people will she tell? I just can’t imagine telling someone I had 2 orgasms while my baby was being delivered. That’s just like taking away from that beautiful moment I feel.
I guess it can happen and maybe some women can’t control the orgasm coming on, but a little awkward for me to say the least.
