    SMNET Learning submitted a new educational resource:

    Vaginal birth head crowning video - Vaginal birth head crowning video

    This is a good example 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 don't, it has been argued that it forces mucus into the lungs in some cases. Have a look... -- Please reply below to discuss this resource.

    Wow, that was truly amazing to watch! Only ever been on the pushing end! lol! & watched Discovery home & health whilst pregnant, but they don't really show you everything in all it's glory!

    Thanks for that - can't wait to one day see it for real!

    Very good example to watch, but that sterile field was just hilarious! Wasn't keen on his fiddling with the perineum (it seemed like with his pushing he could almost turn the fourchette inside out and cause damage by making it need to stretch more?) but pleased with his decision not to do an episiotomy. Especially a vertical one! Why on earth do they still do that instead of the j-shape in the states against all the evidence???

    Don't really understand all the technical talk (hopefully I will at some point?!) but that was incredible! Wow! It did make my toes curl when he was poking about 'down there' but even so, wow! Again!

    I didn't get the perineum bit either, but I giggled when he waved the babies hand at mum.

    I still remember to this day the feeling when the baby pushes down and rides back up and the "Pop" the head is out and the rest is done within seconds, brilliant vid though. Really opened my eyes to what it's like from the other end . Can't wait!
