With the final contractions of childbirth, this mother is pushing her baby out in these water birth pictures. The head is visible just under the water as it's being lifted up by the midwife.

Water birth can be very helpful for moms when it comes to positioning in pushing. The buoyancy allows moms to get into various positions more easily.
