Amazing childbirth

So this might freak some of you out, but being a nursing student I am absolutely fascinated with this stuff. Below is an computerized animation of a baby being born vaginally. I discovered this video during my OB rotation. Notice how the baby turns at just the right time so his head can fit through the pelvis, and then rotates again so the shoulders can fit through. Amazing. God has enabled our bodies to do amazing things!


  1. amazing. Makes me want to have another baby. ok, maybe not. someday :)

  2. WOW! Pretty cool. My hubby says our daughter exploded out and forgot to turn. HA!

  3. It is SO AMAZING how God has designed the female body to birth babies. I'm absolutely amazed by it and thought being in labor was the most empowering and wonderful experience ever!
