Presentation
  • Delivery presentation describes the way the baby is positioned to come down the birth canal for delivery.
  • Cephalic (head-first) presentation is considered normal and occurs in about 97% of deliveries.
  • Breech presentation is considered abnormal and occurs about 3% of the time. A complete breech presentation occurs when the buttocks present first, and both the hips and knees are flexed
  • The shoulder, arm, or trunk may present first if the fetus is in a transverse lie. This type of presentation occurs less than 1% of the time. Transverse lie is more common with premature delivery or multiple pregnancies.

  • After the birth, you should feel relieved
  • Usually the baby is in your arms but there is still a lot going on
  • Placenta is still to be delivered
  • Typically takes about 5 minutes
  • May take 30 minutes
