Normal Vaginal Delivery

Create: 06/15/2016 - 02:26

A woman’s body is built for childbirth, and most women are able to successfully give birth vaginally. In most cases, normal vaginal birth is the safest and best option for both you and your baby.
 
The baby is born head-first, through the birth canal (vagina), supervised by a health-care professional who ensures that mother and baby are well, but labour progresses without medical assistance.
 
This 3D medical video depicts a normal vaginal birth using a timelapse effect. Strong uterine contractions push the fetus forcibly through the birth canal during labour. A picture-in-picture effect at the upper right shows the baby's head moving through the mother's pelvic outlet.
