During a Vaginal Delivery (Normal Delivery), there are 3 important stages of Labor and birth. The beginning of cervical contraction: During this stage, try not to panic about what is about to come. This stage lasts for about 3-4 hrs. Contractions will last from 30-60secs and appear 3-5 minutes apart.
Vaginal delivery of the baby: This stage lasts from 20 minutes to 2 hrs. Cervix is fully dilated and doctor will start asking you to push the baby in this stage. There is a chance of nausea and vomiting at this stage. Do not panic. Remember that every movement counts in this stage and ask your nurse and doctor to guide to breathe and push.
Pushing the placenta out of the uterus: This is the phase after the child birth. The umbilical cord is cut and small contractions help in pushing the placenta out of the uterus. This stage lasts about 5-10 minutes.
The video is an informative animated presentation of how the process of labor and delivery happens. During a vaginal child birth, the first stage of labor lasts for 12-19 hours and starts when the baby settles lower into the pelvis. In response, the cervix begins to efface or become thinner, and dilate or widen. During this time, the mother may feel strong, regular contractions occurring every 5-20 minutes, a lower back pain and cramping that doesn’t go away. At the beginning of stage 2 of labor, which usually lasts from 20 minutes to 2 hours, the cervix is fully dilated to 10 centimeters, and the baby’s head has moved beyond the cervical opening and into the birth canal. When the top of the baby's head appears or crowns, the doctor may make a small cut called the episiotomy, to enlarge the vaginal opening. The doctor will then give the mother advice and assistance in pushing the baby out.
