normally the vagina has to be dialuted 10cm before she can start pushing.
whilst the mother is pushing, the babys head will be pushed out of the vagina this is called crowning
the midwife wil then ease the shoulders out and your baby will be born,

the mother then has the after birth
this is where the placenta is delivered through the vagina
