You can already guess that D is not the proper answer to this question. So you can choose from A, B, and C. The best answer to this is B. The doctor has to check for a prolapsed cord so that this can be fixed easily before the rest of your baby comes out.
Take note that when doing natural childbirth, you are recommended to stop pushing the moment that you experience the burning sensation in your vagina which will signify the crowning. T
he baby will be able to come out easily after that and you will be preventing vaginal tears that way. If in case there is a prolapsed cord, the doctor or the midwife will manually remove the baby to prevent further complications.
