  • Labor and Delivery
    • Labor is the process of expelling the fetus from the uterus and through the vagina.

    • 5. Dilation stage – 1st stage
    • 6. Expulsion stage – 2nd stage
    • 7. Placental stage – 3rd stage
  • Dilation Stage
    • The uterine contracts strongly to expel the fetus.
    • 8. The fetus presses on the cervix and causes it to dilate or expand.
    • 9. At the end of this stage the cervix is dilated to 10 centimeters.
    • 10. It is the longest stage.
    • 11. It is divided into two phases –
    early labor and active labor.
  • 12. Expulsion Stage
    • The baby enters the birth canal.
    • 13. In this stage you get the urge to push.
    • 14. In this stage the baby is born.
  • Placental Stage
    • The uterus continues to contract.
    • 15. The uterus expels the placenta through the vagina.
    • 16. The placenta is usually delivered
    5 – 10 minutes after the baby is born.
