Parto Vaginal

""Parto Vaginal" es el término utilizado para describir el nacimiento de un bebé a través de la vagina (contra un parto por cesárea). Normalmente, primero aparece la cabeza del bebé. Haga clic sobre la animación o sobre las series ilustradas arriba para ver cómo ocurre un parto vaginal normal. Si el bebé no está de cabeza, (por ejemplo, de nalgas ) puede ser necesario extraerlo a través de una cesárea.
