Bell ringer
  • What will it be like to give birth to a child (or to have your wife give birth)? Do you want to do it all naturally? Do you want to be in a hospital? What are some of your concerns?
1 st stage
1st stage
  • During the first stage, uterine contractions begin (left) and are usually spaced from 10 to 20 minutes apart.
  • Initially the contractions are gentle, but they tend to become more powerful and sometimes uncomfortable.
  • The cervix dilates with each contraction (right), and the baby’s head rotates to fit through the mother’s pelvis.
2 nd stage
2nd stage
  • The second stage of labor usually lasts about 90 minutes.
  • During this stage, the cervix opens sufficiently and the baby begins to move down the birth canal.
  • The mother pushes, or bears down, in response to pressure against her pelvic muscles. The crown of the baby’s head becomes visible in the widened birth canal.
  • As the head emerges entirely (left) the physician turns the baby’s shoulders (right), which emerge one at a time with the next contractions.
  • The rest of the body then slides out relatively easily, and the umbilical cord is sealed and cut.
3 rd stage
3rd stage
  • Following the exit of the infant, the third stage of labor occurs.
  • The uterus continues to contract, expelling the severed umbilical cord and placenta, called the afterbirth.
  • The third stage occurs within ten minutes of the baby’s birth.
c section or cesarean birth
C section or Cesarean birth
  • Delivery or a baby by making surgical incisions in the mothers abdomen
  • Why C-section?
    • Mother too small
    • Baby too big
    • Fetal distress
    • Mother or child cannot tolerate labor
    • STDs
    • Previous C-section
  • Most women prefer some kind of anesthesia.
  • Natural (unmedicated) childbirth is becoming more popular because the anesthesia can make the newborn baby less alert after birth.
  • An epidural is given in the spinal sheath and numbs the patient from the waist down.
  • A paracervical block, also known as a cervical block numbs the cervix.
  • A pudendal block is given in the pudendal nerve and will numb the whole bottom and legs.
  • The cervix must dilate to some degree before any anesthesia is given. For this reason, a mother needs to learn some breathing and relaxation techniques.
