Question and answer
The transition stage of birth is characterized by
Transition is by far the most challenging, although the shortest, phase of birthing. This can cause overwhelming sensations which might falter your focus. This is the phase usually depicted in mainstream media. [ These contractions are stronger and longer and finish dilating the cervix. They usually last 90-120 seconds with breaks of about a minute or two in between. Generally this phase only last for 30 minutes to 2 hours. A time distortion may also be experienced in this phase that makes it seem to pass more quickly and may make this period difficult to remember clearly after the birth.
Experiencing grogginess or a mental fog are also common. Nausea can also set in as well as involuntary painless shaking from the intensity. Women are especially vulnerable to suggestion at this time, which can be used to enhance or to hinder the birth. ]
