Childbirth: The deliverance

Usually 15 to 20 minutes after birth, the placenta is expelled under the effect of contractions. It is examined by the midwife who ensures that everything has been expelled to prevent infection or haemorrhage of the uterus.

During the two hours following the delivery, the brand new mother stays in the birth room, where one monitors her blood pressure, her pulse, her temperature, her vaginal bleeding ... But these few hours are above all the privileged moment to get to know the baby

If the mother wishes to breastfeed, the midwife in principle will help for this first feeding, essential to start breastfeeding well.
