Second stage of childbirth - birth of the baby, step 9


The whole of the baby's head appears at the vulva, with her nose pointing downwards. If your baby was back-to-back or breech then things will be different but for the majority of mums, the baby will arrive headfirst facing down.

Once you've reached this stage the rest will follow swiftly. Congratulations!
