Labour - Stage 2


The cervix is fully dilated.

The baby's head might be in the birth canal.

The contractions seem to slow down or even stop for 15 mins or so.

The mother becomes optimistic and determined.

The mum must only push if she feels the urge. Sometimes the baby need to come down lower.

This is an exciting phase and time is close to seeing her baby.

Strong contractions resume with the urge to push. The urge is strong and involuntary it comes from the inside.

The baby moves down with each pushing effort.

Crowning - the baby's head no longer slips back between pushes.

the mother feels an intense burning and stinging in her vagina.

The baby's head emerges and rotates and the rest of the body follows.

What I Do

I am living my dream while working with mums and babies. I see mums when they are 34 weeks pregnant and then go to their homes once they go into labour. I stay for the full duration of the labour and after the birth I assist them with breast feeding. I do another visit after the birth to see that all is well and to help where I can.  Mums are always welcome to call me in the event that they have any questions, whether before or after the birth. I am passionate about my work as a doula and I care and love all the families with which I work. Once you have been present at a birth you feel part of the family and it’s wonderful to hear news of the new baby’s life as he or she grows.
