Medical visualization taken from human scanned data showing childbirth in 4 steps. The first step shows the fetus still within the mother in childbirth position (head first). The second step shows the baby's head emerging from the dilated cervix and birth canal. Uterine contractions help push the baby out of the cervix. The third step shows the baby emerging face down, as most babies are born. Finally, the fourth step shows the ending of the birth. The baby is still connected to the mother by the umbilical cord.
