The fetal station in labor and delivery

The fetal station in labor and delivery

Being closer to the birth, it is important to know whether the fetus is in the right position for the birth process or not. Generally, entering the third trimester, the baby will move more actively in the womb to the position of labor, towards the pelvis. Knowing the position of the fetus in the right place for labor or not is important for mothers. Continue reading “The fetal station in labor and delivery”

Mechanism of labor

Mechanism of labor

The mechanism of labor is defined as a position movement carried out by the fetus to adjust to the mother’s pelvis. The main movements of the mechanism of labor are engagement, head loss, flexion, internal rotation (inner rotation), extension, expulsion, external rotation (outer rotation). In short, the mechanism of labor is successive fetal movements to adjust to the birth canal. Continue reading “Mechanism of labor”

Normal Vaginal Delivery

Normal Vaginal Delivery

Talking about normal labor, maybe for those who have not experienced it, they will think “horrified, sick, and hurt. Naturally, these such assumptions may exist. Either birth normally or cesarean section is the natural things done by the women. Maybe cesarean delivery is not as painful as normal labor, but it has long-term effects. If asked to choose between normal maternity or cesarean section, it is strongly recommended to deliver normally. Some women are not likely or not recommended to give birth normally. Since, if someone forced to give birth normally, it will be fatal for both the mother and fetus. Continue reading “Normal Vaginal Delivery”

Pushing the Baby Out

Pushing the Baby Out

Labor is a natural process, and very involved the instinct. Indeed, practically in most health services both hospitals, clinics, health centers or midwifery practice sites, they mostly instruct mothers to push as hard as they can in a lying position.

Four stages of labor

Four stages of labor

If the pregnancy is considered normal and healthy, it is likely that the mother will give birth normally or spontaneously. It’s good to recognize the stages of labor:

  1. Stage I

This stage indicates the normal labor process has begun. In partu (start parturition) is characterized by the discharge of mucus mixed with blood because the cervix begins to ripen and the opening process of the cervix (cervix) to widen to 10 cm to exit the fetus. Blood originates from the rupture of capillary arteries around the cervical canal. In general, this stage lasts between 8-12 hours. Continue reading “Four stages of labor”

The differences between true labor and false labor

The differences between true labor and false labor

The real labor is the process of labor followed by regular and adequate contractions as well as the opening of the cervix. These contractions usually occur 4 to 5 times in 10 minutes with a duration of more than 45 seconds. While pseudo labor often occurs before labor.

The physiology of childbirth

The physiology of childbirth

Childbirth is a natural process in which cervical dilatation, the birth of the baby and the placenta from the mother’s uterus occur. Normally labor begins when the fetus is old enough to be able to maintain itself from intrauterine life to extrauterine life. The childbirth process consists of 4 phases, the first phase is called the opening, where the cervix ripens and opens up to a completely about 10 cm. Continue reading “The physiology of childbirth”

Factors influencing the labor

Factors influencing the labor

Physiologically, when the gestational age is mature enough, a series of symptoms arise as the signal starting for labor. Here are several factors causing the timing of labor. These factors work together to produce a very strong, regular, rhythmic uterine contraction that ends with the birth of the fetus and placenta. Here, we have submitted the factors also what things are should be known to the mother before labor. Continue reading “Factors influencing the labor”
