3 stages of birth:
2.) Labor: During the second stage of labor, you will push the baby down the vagina (the birth canal) and meet him or her for the first time.
3.) After birth: The third stage of labor begins once the baby is born, and ends when you deliver the placenta and the empty bag of waters that are attached to the placenta. These come away as your uterus contracts down after the birth.
