This video shows the normal vaginal delivery of a baby.
The free, short version was produced by the US Navy as training for medical personnel in isolated settings. It was included on the Operational Obstetrics & Gynecology CD. It may be freely downloaded.
A longer, more up to date version was produced by the Brookside Associates for civilian training. It runs five minutes and is available for download. The same video but in high-resolution is available on CD or DVD
Delivery of the baby
During the delivery, the fetal head emerges through the vaginal opening, usually facing toward the woman's rectum.
As the fetal head delivers, support the perineum to reduce the risk of perineal laceration from uncontrolled, rapid delivery.
After the fetal head delivers, allow time for the fetal shoulders to rotate and descend through the birth canal. This pause also allows the birth canal to squeeze the fetal chest, forcing amniotic fluid out of the baby's nose and mouth.
After a reasonable pause (15-30 seconds), have the woman bear down again, delivering the shoulders and torso of the baby.
