Pregnancy : The World Inside
When I think back, I can almost feel those kicks again. Few things are as magical as the baby in your belly letting you know she’s there, well before you’ll meet her face-to-face.
Labor and birth : Special Cases (part 5) - Cesarean Section
A cesarean section is the delivery of your baby by means of a cut in the abdomen. A cesarean rate of around 10–15 percent is thought to be reasonable, although in most Western countries the rate has risen beyond 20 percent and around 30 percent of all babies in the US are now delivered by cesarean, an all-time high.
Labor and birth : Special Cases (part 4) - Assisted Birth
An assisted birth is a birth in which either forceps or a vacuum suction cup (also called a vacuum or ventouse extractor) are used to aid a vaginal delivery. There may be some mild side effects such as bruising after an assisted birth, but major complications are rare.
Labor and birth : Special Cases (part 3) - Multiple Births
If you are having twins, you will get the chance to discuss your plans for giving birth with your obstetrician during the pregnancy. Your decision to have a vaginal birth or a cesarean section will probably be based upon several factors, such as the position of the babies.
Labor and birth : Special Cases (part 2) - Breech Baby
Breech labors and births are usually more difficult, so if your baby is still in a breech position in late pregnancy, you may be offered a procedure to turn your baby .
Labor and birth : Special Cases (part 1) - Premature Birth, Induction of Labor
If your labor is induced, the chance that you will need an assisted delivery with forceps or vacuum or a cesarean is increased. This is even more likely if you are having your first baby, if the cervix is unfavorable, or if you’re being induced relatively early in your pregnancy.

“I Gained 45kg During Pregnancy”
As your baby grows and your body takes on a curvier and more voluptuous silhouette, gaining extra kilos is a given during pregnancy. Even so, doctors say it’s no excuse to binge.
Labor and birth : 2nd and 3rd Stages (part 2) - Delivering your Baby - Crowning
As your baby descends, the chin will be tucked down toward the chest and the head will rotate slightly so that your baby is facing your back; this enables the largest part of your baby’s head to pass through the widest part of the pelvis.
Labor and birth : 2nd and 3rd Stages (part 1) - Delivering your Baby - Which positions to adopt
If you prefer a sitting position, try to sit in an upright or semi-recumbent position.

Labor and birth : 1st Stage of Labor (part 3) - Changes to the cervix,Posterior presentation
The cervix is comprised of firm muscle that forms a strong base at the bottom of the uterus. For your baby to be born, the cervix needs to stretch and soften so that it can open, or dilate, and your baby can pass out of the uterus and into the vagina.
Labor and birth : 1st Stage of Labor (part 2) - How Labor Progresses - When it’s time to go to the hospital
Many couples feel unsure about when to go to the hospital. If your pregnancy is low risk, you will almost certainly be more comfortable at home at the start of labor and should wait until you’re in active labor, when your contractions are regular, occurring every 5–10 minutes, and painful, before going to the hospital.
Labor and birth : 1st Stage of Labor (part 1) - Approaching Labor

If you have urge incontinence (also known as an overactive bladder), you get the urge to go even though your bladder is barely filled. You also leak en route to the bathroom. (Having frequent urges without the leakage is called urinary frequency and often has the same causes.)
