Nine Months :Third Stage of Labour - Delivery of Placenta

What happens in this stage?

The third stage involves the delivery of the placenta soon after your baby is born.

* This stage usually takes less than half hour.

* You will be given an injection of syntometrine during or right after birth. This helps to deliver the placenta quickly.

* After the injection, the womb contracts strongly and the placenta is delivered.

* The midwife or doctor will check the placenta to see if it is complete and that no parts are left in your body.

What can I do to help myself?

You may be asked to help by pushing to deliver the placenta.
