Another one here whose baby started 'talking' whilst just her head was out. I had to wait until the next contraction to push her out and she was having a good old natter! Everyone in the room was giggling. I just love that.

I'm a bit behind. Gutted I really wanted to watch the water birth and it was over so quickly!!

"OMG that would freak me out if my baby started crying when just head was out!"

My third son (11lbs 3oz) made a few sounds while only his head was out; I could feel the vibration of his voice through my body. It was sweet - everyone in the room went "aww".

Sorry, watching on catch up!

Has she just been refused an epidural for 6 hours? shock

the clip on baby's head is a fetal scalp electrode it monitors the baby's heartbeat. Reasons it is used are usually because the ctg is not maintaining good contact so keep losing the heartbeat.

I thought Lucy was lovely. so much better than a shouty midwife.

ChristineDaae Wed 13-Feb-13 22:01:33

Oh thanks, why do the only do it sometimes? Is it the ones who have epidurals/inductions etc where they need more monitoring?

It's a clip to monitor the baby's oxygen levels when they are still in the womb

Ah thanks Susie, I thought that must be it.

susiedaisy Wed 13-Feb-13 21:52:25

Then I think its mostly because the lungs are still too squashed for them to draw a breath although my little cousin was squawking when only his head was out apparently so sometimes they dosmile
