3 stages of birth 1.Dilation of cervix 2.Contractions 3.Placenta is delivered
Stages of Labor First stage (several hours-24 hours) dilation of cervix *checked during a pelvic exam *measured in centimeters, from 0 cm (no dilation) to 10 cm (fully dilated) *4 cm dilated=active stage of labor *fully dilated=ready to start pushing
Effacement *cervix softens as it's preparing for labor *usually begins during the last month of pregnancy *by delivery day, cervix will have stretched from around 1 inch in width to paper thinness *doctor or midwife may start checking for gradual effacement during last two months of pregnancy with internal exams during prenatal visits *effacement is measured in percentages: 0%= no effacement 100%= fully effaced.
Contractions *uterus contracts *contractions get longer, stronger *true contractions=closer together, last 30-70 seconds Baby moves into position
Anesthesia may be used Other options: Demerol and Nubain -can make you drowsy, dizzy and cause nausea and vomiting paracervical block - local anesthetic injected around the cervix to numb the nerves that go to the perineum Spinal anesthesia- local anesthesia placed into the back into the spinal fluid; only lasts about an hour Epidural-A needle is placed between the vertebrae into a space called an epidural space. Medication is then placed into this space through a small catheter which is left in placed and taped.
Transition *Lasts from few minutes-several hours *Contractions last 60 to 90 seconds and come two or three minutes apart *Dilate to 10 cm
Second stage (few minutes-3 hours) *Contractions move baby through pelvis, out of vagina *pelvic ligaments stretch, bones open *episiotomy *baby moves through birth canal *head emerges, shoulders rotate, body is delivered, feet emerge
Third stage (2 minutes-30 minutes) *placenta is delivered
Newborn Procedures Vitamin K-helps blood clot Tests for hearing Blood test for PKU Silver nitrate drops Weighed and measured
