What Happens During Vaginal Delivery and C-Section?
When you're in the second stage of labor -- delivery -- you are mere minutes to a couple hours away from meeting your baby. If you're having a natural birth, you'll push hard during your contractions and rest in between them. And if you happen to poop during all that pushing, don't worry! It happens. Your care team should let you get into whatever delivery position feels best to you, like lying on your back, kneeling, squatting, or getting on your hands and knees.

Fetal Pillow Improves Safety of Caesarean Section
A caesarian section (C-section) in the second stage of labour occurs in 2-3% of all births and carries a much higher risk of traumatic delivery with resulting complications for the mother and baby.
 
The fetal pillow is a disposable balloon device that is designed to atraumatically dis-impact the deeply engaged fetal head during second stage C-section. The pillow is deployed prophylactically before the uterine incision in order to achieve full elevation of the fetal head, prior to attempts at abdominal deliver, reducing the risk of traumatic delivery.
