Childbirth (also called labour, birth, partus or parturition) is the culmination of a human pregnancy with the emergence of a newborn infant from its mother's uterus. A woman is considered to be in labour when she begins experiencing regular, strong uterine contractions, accompanied by changes of her cervix; primarily effacement and dilation.
While childbirth is widely experienced as painful, some women do report painless labours.
When the baby is born its birth weight is determined.
