What is labor/delivery REALLY like?


After seeing some comments from mothers about how they didn't know what to expect and were surprised, it made me really think about it. I have never witnessed a delivery and only seen people in labor for a few minutes at a time.

So rather than assuming its like it is in the movies, can someone please tell me what REALLY goes on?

Like positions and getting your cervix checked and what you're wearing when you have her (I heard you are basically naked during delivery?!) I am a really modest person, so I know I am going to be out of my comfort zone, but if I knew what is going to happen it would calm my anxiety a lot.

Thank you, guys!
