The four stages of labor First stage of labor. During the first stage of labor, contractions help your cervix to thin and begin to open. This is Second stage of labor. The second stage of labor begins when the cervix.

Stages of labor and birth: Baby, it’s time! Stage 1: Early labor and active labor. Open pop-up dialog box. Cervical effacement and dilation. Close.

Cervical effacement and dilation. Cervical effacement and dilation. Stage 2: The birth of your baby. Stage 3: Delivery of the placenta.

Though every woman will have a different labor story and a different labor experience, yet the phases or the stages of the labor remain the same. Labour goes on and about in 4 stages. The 4 stages of labor are as described below: 1st Stage Of Labor: ACTIVE LABOUR. In this stage of labor, you have stronger and intense contractions. Stage 1 of labour: Active labour.

Contractions become stronger, longer and closer together. The cervix is definitely dilating now, at a rate of about one centimetre per hour. From four centimetres onward, you’re in active labour. Stage 2 of labour: Transition. For many women, this is the toughest part of childbirth.

The third stage of labor. This is it girly, the last stage of actual labor. This is from the birth of the baby until the delivery of the placenta. This stage is typically the shortest stage of labor, lasting anywhere from 5-30 minutes.

You might feel cramping right before you deliver the placenta. The placenta coming out does not hurt. First stage of labor. The first stage of labor has three phases: Early labor: Your cervix gradually effaces (thins out) and dilates (opens) to about 6 centimeters (cm) by the end of this phase. Active labor: Your cervix begins to dilate more rapidly and opens up further to 10 cm.

Contractions are longer, stronger, and closer together. The first stage of labor is the longest and involves three phases: Early Labor Phase – The time of the onset of labor until the cervix is dilated to 3 cm. Active Labor Phase – Continues from 3 cm. until the cervix is dilated to 7 cm. Transition Phase – Continues from 7 cm. until the cervix is. Active stage of labor.

A woman is considered to be in the active stage of labor once the cervix dilates to around 5 to 6 cm and contractions begin. The 4 Stages Of Labor First Stage Of Labor. The first stage of labor is the longest and it involves three parts of its own. It usually begins 2nd Stage Of Labor. The 2nd stage of labor is the time when you’re fully dilated and your baby begins moving down the The Third Stage Of Labor.

Congrats. First Stage of Labor. Begins at the onset of labor and ends when the cervix is 100 percent effaced and completely dilated to 10 centimeters.

Average length ranges for a first-time mother is from ten-to-fourteen hours and shorter for subsequent births.

  • Hey everyone:) Thank you so much for watching the video! UPDATE: has recommended guideline changes for cervical dilation for stages of labor: “Cervical dilation of 6 cm should be considered the threshold for the active phase of most women in labor.”

    Meaning: First Stage “Latent” Labor: Cervical dilation of 0-6 cm, First Stage “Active” Labor: Cervical dilation starts at 6 cm rather than 4 cm. For more information:

  • I gave birth to my first at 3:30 this morning

    I delivered with out a epidural but I did have gas & air

    I was pushing for 45 minuets

    I was screaming and panicking it was really really painful

    I felt lots of burning and pressure while I was pushing

    When I felt like I needed to bear down and push I told the nurse but she wouldn’t let me push yet even though I felt like I really had to push because my delivery doctor was at another delivery

    The scariest part of my delivery was when my babies shoulder got stuck shoulder dystocia The nurse at my delivery had to put pressure on my belly super pubic pressure there was a nurse on either side of me pushing my legs way way back to open up my pelvis more to make it easier for baby to be to be born the delivery doctor had to use forceps to help get my baby out I had to push very hard while she pulled really hard on the forceps

    The most intense parts
    was when my delivery doctor was stretching me so I didn’t tear

    The other intense part was when my delivery doctor told me not to push during one of the final contractions so she could suction my babies nose and mouth and make sure the umbilical cord wasn’t around my babies neck then when I could push again she told me to do slow gentle pushes

  • Hi Sarah, have you thought about turning your erase board into cheat sheets for us? I have tons of notes from your board but it helps me visualize it if i see it physically. PLSSSSSSS:)

  • Your videos have helped me tremendously!!! I don’t think I would have gotten through 2nd semester without you�� You’re amazing! Please keep doing what you’re doing lady!!

  • i really love the way you deliver the lecture. it’s very clear and precise. and not boring. i can keep all my attention to you and to it. you’re pretty and as your way of speaking. thank you so much for this! very helpful to my nclex review. God Bless.:)

  • I wish I knew about your videos at the beginning of the semester.I am struggling in OB and having a really hard time comprehending the information. I watched one video and suddenly decelerations was clear as day. I started watching more and I am understanding it so well it is amazing. If only instructors taught this way instead of straight from the power points.

  • I have come back to this set of videos several times for great review.  I found it very helpful in a critical thinking mode going thru the process.  THANK YOU SO MUCH

  • Thank you very much for these videos, you got me and my classmate through nursing school, no joke!! And my classmate is your biggest fan, she always said “my girl Sarah, I need to meet her when I pass the boards”. Bucket item list! Thank you!

  • I love your videos!! Thank you so much for making them! I wish I had watched this video before my test, I didnt do so well on it. �� But I’m gonna watch your videos to help me correlate my learning experience in class. You’ll be like my “tutor”. �� I’m in and LVN program in my 3rd semester learning PEDS and OB-GYN. I’m praying that I can make it, it just started and we just did the first test, praying and trying to work harder to get a “A” on the next exam. ��

    I love your energy how you teach and the use of colors! It really helps me! ��
