Contractions and The baby

Click the triangle in the middle of the video box below to see this wonderful animated visual of the uterus contracting the baby out.

At first the baby rocks back and forth with each contraction gently sliding down toward the vagina. The cervix (bottom of the uterus) gradually opens around the baby’s head. When the cervix reaches 10 centimeters, the baby then enters the vagina and slides right on through. Watch the baby rotate during this very graceful dance.
