  •  Begins when the cervix is fully dilated Ends when the baby is born Urges to push Pain lessens which helps the mother calm down Non-rushing stage May require many different positions
  •  Shortest and least painful 10-30 minutes Uterus contracts causing placenta to detach from uterine wall Clamping and cutting of the umbilical cord
  •  Lasts from after delivery of the placenta until your condition is stable Indicated by BP, pulse, vaginal discharge and uterine tone 1-2 hours
  •  May be planned, unplanned (emergency) Many reasons -prolonged labor -fetal distress -fetal problems -prolapsed cord -placental abruption
