Unmedicated birth with a midwife...only crowning shots. As per mom's request, faces have been blurred.

The baby's head is crowned. The midwife supports the perineum with some warm compresses. An internal fetal monitor wire can be seen against mom's thigh.

Similar shot with more of baby's head showing.

Everyone waits as the head slowly begins to emerge.

More support for mom's perineum.

And here comes baby! Shoulders are delivered, and a new life enters the world.
