Labor & Birth

 

"Life Begins is an impressive piece of work.  It is the most thorough and complete authority on the process of childbirth that I have seen."
 
 
Patricia Weiss, The Choice of Life
 

With strength, joy, pain and great expectation, a woman gives birth. No one knows exactly how labor begins, but it results in powerful contractions of the uterus and an equally powerful response from the mother. Their combined efforts produce a force that pushes the baby from the comfortable confines of the womb. See four different birthing scenes (optional lockout). Animated and interactive graphics explain the sequence of labor and the development of the newborn.
