Emergency Child Birth

Definition:

A situation where the expecting mother is away from medical facilities and the baby is on its way.

Causes:

Being away from medical facilities is the most common cause for this situation. Also, not having transportation.

Recognition:

If the mother says, “the baby is coming,” or the baby’s head is showing, or the contractions are less than two minutes apart, then it is time to deliver the baby on the spot.

Treatment:
