the First minutes after birth

once the baby was born, how he will behave after birth, will depend on you, and on how quickly your child adapts to life outside the uterus.

Most newborns know how to breathe and cry during the first seconds after birth. If the newborn is breathing well and correctly, then right after the baby was born, it pokladut you in the chest or abdomen. The child's contact with your skin will help him keep warm, to calm the breathing and heart rate. And will allow you to establish each other the physical contact. It is very important for breastfeeding.

the Birth with vacuum

most of the babies born with help of vacuum will breathe and cry at birth. But some children can be a little slow to breathe on her own. Especially if the birth took place with complications. If this happens, the midwife will place the baby on a special table with heating. As soon as your child starts to breathe properly, him wrapped in warm towels or blankets and will return to you. You can, while keep the child to begin to try to breastfeed him.

there Are times when you may need additional medical care, so your baby, you may have to wait.

Emergency Caesarean section

the Babies born emergency caesarean section are likely to require assistance to breathe at birth. When your child is breathing well, and your health is stable, then the midwife will give it to you to hold until you will be on the operating table, if you haven't had General anesthesia.

If your child requires assistance to begin breathing at birth, then you may have to go to the NICU. Your first contact with the child is likely to be delayed for a short period until you and your baby will be healthy.

the cutting of the umbilical cord

After the child was born, the umbilical cord is cut. It is difficult to cut, but it's not painful for you and the baby. If you have a birth partner, your birthing partner can cut the umbilical cord himself. Of course, if he has the desire to do it. This is only possible after a traditional vaginal birth, but after a caesarean you that nobody will do.

Our baby daughter we my husband and gave birth together. He was a bit shocked, but kept a stiff upper lip and closer to the final episode was absolutely calm and even managed to joke with the midwives. To cut the umbilical cord much desire he had. That wasn't the purpose of his presence at childbirth. I just wanted to so we could be together in such an important moment for us and I am very glad and grateful that in this moment he was near.

How your child looks and behaves after birth

the Most important changes occur in the body of your child when he moves from the secure, calm and warm environment of your stomach to the outside world. When the child begins to cry and makes the first breath, blood begins to actively move through it easy, enriching the body with oxygen.

It is absolutely normal for a child if it looks blue or purple after delivery. If your child is breathing well, the color of the skin turns pink within 5-15 minutes after he was born. Hands and your child's feet can stay blue for about 24 hours. This is because the blood vessels in the hands and feet of your baby are very small, and in order to keep blood properly circulating there, takes a little more time.

If the birth went well, the babies start to cry immediately after birth. Then, as a rule, they opened his eyes, quietly looking at the new world around them, before going to sleep. For infants is noma, to sleep immediately after birth, but some babies can stay awake and pray to eat. If your child is ready to breastfeed immediately after birth, the midwife will help you attach the baby to the breast.

In some cases need medical care

If your child is not breathing as it should after he was born, or has a low heart rate (less than 100 beats per minute), it will be transferred to a heating station where the hospital staff will decide if he will need additional medical care.

the Midwife may clear the airway of your child and help him to breathe, clean feeding standard air through a special mask for babies. A breathing device and mask will remain on the baby until, until he starts breathing on his own. If the breathing of your child, speed, and heart rate don't improve, you may need oxygen through a mask or breathing tube.

Most newborns begin to breathe rapidly in response to drying and stimulation. Very few children require assistance to begin breathing independently. And less than 3 out of 1,000 babies in need of resuscitation, such as chest compression and administration of drugs.

First check

In the first hour after birth, the midwife will put on the child's tag name. The same child will be suspended. As the child will measure and weigh, will test the physical condition of the baby. As you will be asked to give permission for the hepatitis b vaccine is the only vaccination that is required at birth.

That's basically everything you can expect in the first minutes and hours after the birth of your long awaited miracle. Lungs you childbirth!
