The Birth Talk 4

Third stage of labor


・ I will pull it like a pain

・ The placenta comes out 10 to 15 minutes after giving birth.

・ After that, take a rest

・ Weak labor pains and placental delivery

About 10 to 15 minutes after giving birth, you will experience something like weak labor. If you take it lightly, the placenta, egg membrane, umbilical cord, etc. will come out. This is called late birth. At the same time as the postpartum, the blood vessels that connect the placenta and uterus are cut and bleed. The amount varies from person to person, but it is about 200 to 300 cc. Bleeding naturally decreases with the contraction of the uterus. It depends on the hospital, but after giving birth, it seems that they often stay in the delivery room for a while to check if there is anything wrong with the mother.

・ The umbilical cord is cut, and it becomes a baby


After the baby is born, the amniotic fluid swallowed in the nose and mouth is sucked up by a tube called a catheter. Next, tie and cut the umbilical cord (umbilical cord) that tied the placenta to the baby. The baby is now alone from the mother's body. After soaking in Ubuyu, height, weight, chest circumference, head circumference, etc. are measured and the whole body is carefully checked. This is the end of the birth drama and the curtain is over. The mother and baby, who were the protagonists of the drama, will take a rest after this.
