Mother's fears of childbirth are often related to the moment of crowning. What is crowning?

Crowning is when the widest part of the baby's head is passing through the vagina. You can view graphic vaginal childbirth videos and see the process of delivery. At this point in labour the head of the baby can be seen at the vagina. This is the final part of the second stage of labour. The baby's head flexes and rotates as it descends through the birth canal.

In a hospital at the second stage of labor, the mother is urged to push or relax. View graphic vaginal childbirth videos here to see the pushing of the baby. In hospitals, often episiotomy is made in the perineum (the area between the vagina and the rectum) to quicken the delivery. Sometimes forceps or vacuum extraction is placed for the birth. These procedures often require a local analgesic, epidural, pudenda, Para cervical, or local in the perineum.

Hospital birth is often instrument assisted birth, as you can view graphic vaginal childbirth videos. The atmosphere and the medical procedures induce fear in the birthing mother. While she is anxious and frightened, the body releases hormones called catecholamine (adrenaline and non-adrenaline). These hormones induce the fight or flight syndrome. The body responds with restless movements. The breathing gets rapid. The pupils dilate. We might be shivering. The blood pressure rises. The pulse gets rapid. If there were a real danger the body is perfectly equipped to escape or fend off danger. However, in labour, if you feel uncomfortable, tense, nervous and unsupported, oxytocin falls in direct proportions to the rising levels of adrenaline and the contractions can slow or even stop.

A friend after having her waters broken, just had no contractions for 12 hours. In a normal birth this is absurd, because the breaking of the waters is a sure sign of imminent birthing and entering in the pushing stage. When she entered the hospital, however, she felt trapped without support. Her body assumed she is in danger and produces a great amount of adrenaline to assist her. The result, however, was that the cervix ceased to dilate, resulting in a tug-of-war effect and increasing pain. There was little progress. This is the reason in hospital setting instrument assisted birth is a common practice.

It is vital that you feel safe during labour to keep adrenaline levels at bay.

In a homebirth setting, the birthing mother feels safe and supported. That is why an episiotomy is rarely used. Proper pineal support by the midwife, the partner, or the mother herself relaxes the muscles.

During my first birth, I remembered that I need to support the perineal floor in order to prevent tear. I put my hand there and kept the perineum. The effect was not only physically massaging and relaxing the muscles, but I could also feel in my hand the face of my yet unborn daughter. I felt exhilaration. It was like caressing her and my yearning to see her in my arms increased. I was longing to see her out in the world and begged her to progress down the birthing canal. This feeling of joy might have been the reason I did not feel "the ring of fire", as women call the burning sensation on baby's head crowning.

My first daughter had a very big fontanel and her head was quite soft, which has probably also contributed to the lack of any pain during the pushing and delivery stage. In a home birth, breath-pushing efforts by the mother allow the perineum to stretch slowly and move over the crowning baby's head. Patience, position changes and support make the mother relax and help for the natural release of the body's pain killers - endorphins.

At the end of the second stage of birth, as you can view graphic vaginal childbirth videos, the perineum begins to bulge with the baby's head which appears at the opening of the vagina.

In assisted births, the baby's head rotates to the left or to the right maternal leg. View graphic vaginal childbirth videos here to see how this is routinely done. It is believed that the rotation of the head helps the shoulders pass through the mother's pelvis. In my experience of unassisted births, nobody rotated the baby's head and the shoulders passed very quickly through the pelvis. I do not think that it is necessary in most cases, since the baby naturally rotates in order to find the best position, just as the mother changes positions for easiest delivery.

After that the shoulders emerge and the rest of the body follows quickly.

The baby is placed upon the mother's abdomen. In a hospital, the cord is cut right away and clamped. You can view graphic vaginal childbirth videos to see this procedure. The baby is removed from the mother's abdomen, suctioned and examined. Suctioning is often done with electrical suction unit in assisted births. Suctioning is not always needed or recommended. During my first unassisted birth, Gabbie (my daughter) has some mucus in her mouth and nose - she sniffed and coughed and took it out very easily and quickly. Since the umbilical cord was not cut, and the placenta was still in my body, she has an additional source of oxygen in the first moments of birth. Very gentle suctioning might be necessary after birth if there is excess of mucus, or meconium, or blood (such as in an episiotomy or tear). Suctioning is usually not necessary at all. Aggressive suctioning can cause adverse reactions. It is needed only if there is mucus or meconium around baby's face, nose and mouth and can be inhaled when breathing begins. It is best done with bulb syringe. In a homebirth, the midwife or parents usually wait for the cord to stop pulsating before clamping and cutting. This allows the baby to continue to receive oxygen and nutrients, while normal breathing patterns are established. The baby remains on mother's abdomen or in her hands and is having its first breastfeeding. It is important the baby to be covered with blankets. During my first birth it was very warm, and I did not think the baby will need to be covered with anything else but a towel; however I felt it quickly getting cold in my hands and was very agitated. The newborn needs warmth and a massage to help stimulate breathing responses and circulation efforts is a good idea. However, at this moment, the best is the mother-baby bonding and breastfeeding. The baby and mother are covered with warm blankets and rest for a while. The sucking will stimulate the contractions of the uterus and will aid to expel the placenta. In both my births the breastfeeding induced strong contractions and speeded the delivery of the placenta. I felt this effect, because in my second birth, the baby was in my hands, but I needed some time to bring it to the nipple and hold it in a convenient position to breastfeed while trying to cover it with the blanket. So I clearly distinguished how the contractions started and got stronger and stronger as the baby sucked. Even after the birth, I had very strong contraction during breastfeeding. They helped for clearing the uterus.
