What is the Crowning of the Head?
Is when the widest part of the fetal head (biparietal diameter) distends the vulva.
Sometimes referred as the ring of fire, because when the head starts to stretch the vulva in order to allow your baby to come out, the mother start to feel a burning sensation down in her vagina, some woman say that it feels like she wants to poo so bad! like when someone its constipated and want to poo.
A similar feeling may be if you put your fingers in each side of your mouth and pull, there is this stretching sensation.

Relax and focus, let your contractions to do the work for you during this time.
