Stage 2 labor is an exciting time as your baby descends through the birth canal. Pushing efforts are a process facilitated by positioning and an awareness of the body's urge to bear down. We will discuss positioning, the physical and emotional challenges of stage 2 labor, the importance of skin-to-skin contact and early bonding, cord clamping, and the birth of the placenta. Procedures for newborns and what to expect during the early postpartum period are also covered. Dress comfortably. Bring water and a snack.
