Women's obstetrics and gynecology state that every delivery is as unique and individual as each mother and infant. Giving birth is a life-changing event that will leave an impression on the mother for the rest of her life.
Last week, we elaborated on the early phases of the labor and delivery process. Today, let's talk about the birth itself and delivery of the placenta.
The nurse or doctor will ask the mother to stop pushing momentarily while the baby’s mouth and nose are suctioned to clear out amniotic fluid and mucus. It’s important to do this before the baby starts to breathe and cry.
Usually, the doctor will rotate the baby’s head a quarter of a turn to be in alignment with the baby’s body, which is still inside of the mother. Then she will be asked to begin pushing again to deliver the shoulders.
The top shoulder comes first and then the lower shoulder.
Then, with one last push, the baby is out!
