    This is a good exampe of a vaginal birth, notice how in one shot the head is vertical and in the next its horizontal, this is the result of restitution, where the baby turns, sadly they missed that bit but its a great example of a baby crowning.

    Suctioning babies on the perineum is a hot topic, some do, some dont, it has been argued that it forces mucus into the lungs in some cases.

    Have a look...

    That was brilliant Josie,

    I understand restitution more now I have watched it, we covered that at uni last time we were there, but it didn't really make much sense.

    Thanks for posting that.
