    1. Birthing and baby tests Ms. Perez

    2. 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?

    3. 3 Stages of labor

    4. 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.

    5. 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.

    6. birth • 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.

    7. 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.

    8. 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

    9. Create a birthing time line with a partner at your table • 1st stage • 2nd stage • Birth • 3rd stage

    10. Anesthesia • 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.

    11. After birth • APGAR Test • Given 1 minute and 5 minutes after birth • Babies are given a 0, 1, or 2 in 5 categories • Categories are • Heart Rate • Respiratory effort • Muscle tone • Reflex irritability • Color

    12. Physical development • Reflexes • Rooting • Turns head towards anything that brushing their face • Needed for survival •

    13. Moro Reflex • Startle reflex • Infant reacts by flinging arms and legs and extending the head • Then the infant will pull arms together crying •

    14. Palmar grasp reflex • When you touch an infants palm, they will grip your hand tightly •

    15. Babinski Reflex • Toes fan out when bottom of foot is touched • Stroke the sole of the foot from the outside of the from the heel to toe, toes will fan out and curl as the foot twists in. • Only lasts for the 1st year •

    16. Stepping or walking • Appears two-three months after birth • When babies are held so that feet are flat, babies will start to put one foot in front of the other •

    17. Motor Development • Crawling vs. Creeping • Crawling=moving forward with belly on the floor pulling with arms and pushing with legs • Creeping=moving on hands and knees with stomach up, in quadruped.

    18. Creeping or crawling?
