Caption

Placental expulsion, artwork. This is the third stage of labour, which begins just after the baby has been delivered and ends with the expulsion of the umbilical cord and placenta (afterbirth, grey and white) through the vagina. The pubic bone is green. Below the pubic bone is the bladder (red). Surrounding the placenta is the uterus (red). Below the uterus are the rectum (red) and the spine (white). Expulsion of the afterbirth usually occurs within 30 minutes of the baby being delivered.
