BIRTH PHASES

FIRST STAGE

The first stage of labor is characterized by the appearance of regular cramping pain in the abdomen and back. Cervix starts to open and widen. Duration of the first stage in nulliparous women is about 12 hours, in multiparous – approximately 8 hours. Intensity of labour increases, which is manifested by shortening of the interval between each contraction and elongation of each pain.

SECOND STAGE

The second stage of labor begins after the full opening of the cervix and is divided into passive and active phases. During the passive phase of the second stage of labour the presenting part of the fetus is moving through the birth canal, reaching the pelvic floor. At this point, there appears a desire to push. Duration of the second stage is from 15 minutes to 2 hours. This stage ends with birth of the child. Father can be present during the whole process of labour.

After birth, a baby that does not require additional medical assistance, is laid out on the mother’s breasts for approximately 2 hours. It helps seeding the baby with maternal flora. Moreover the baby contacts with it’s mother “eye-to-eye”. The baby is attached to breasts which helps prevent purulent-septic complications, jaundice in the newborn, as well as hypogalactia and postpartum bleeding in the mother.

THIRD STAGE

The third stage of labour begins with the birth of the baby and ends with placental expulsion.

Throughout the process Adonis professionals perform all the necessary manipulations and examinations for safe and comfortable delivery. Two hours after birth, neonatologist examines the baby, midwife washes, weighs and measures it.

Later the mother and her newborn baby stay together in a comfortable post-natal ward under a 24-hour care and control. At Adonis maternity hospital we provide 5-day stay.
