Support the perineum with the hand to prevent tearing and tell the client to pant

Gentle pressure is applied to the babys head as it emerges so it is not born too rapidly. The head is never held back. and it should be supported as it emerges so there will be no vaginal lacerations. It is impossible to push and pant at the same time.
