PART 5B

PARTURITION (Birth)


Parturition delivery of the baby

Parturition: Delivery of the Baby

  • The birthing process or ‘labour’

  • Begins with uterine contractions

    • Occurring every 15-20 mins in frequency and lasting for a duration of 40-60 sec.


Parturition

Parturition

  • Relaxin hormone is released by the placenta, loosening ligaments of the pelvis and softening the cervix.

  • Uterus contractions causes stretching of cervix

  • Stretching of cervix causes release of oxytocin from posteriorpituitary gland

  • Oxytocin stimulates uterine contractions and release of prostaglandins from the uterus

  • Prostaglandins cause uterine contractions

    (+) Feedback Cycle continues until baby is born

Caesarean c section

(Caesarean) C-Section

Typical reasons:

  • Breech births

  • Small pelvis

  • STI complications


Lactation

Lactation

  • The secretion and formation of breast milk in the mother

  • Requires the hormone prolactin

    • not secreted during pregnancy because it is high levels of estrogen and progesterone suppress production

  • Secreted by anterior pituitary following birth


Lactation1

Lactation


Lactation and suckling

Lactation and Suckling

  • Suckling stimulates nerve endings in the nipples

  • Nerve impulse causes the hypothalamus to stimulate the posterior pituitary to secrete oxytocin

  • Oxytocin causes mammary cells to contract causing the milk glands to produce milk

  • Contractions of milk glands cause milk to be secreted through ducts through the nipple.
