    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    An infant is a term used to describe a baby under the age of 1 year. This is the correct answer because it accurately defines the stage of development for a child in their first year of life.

    Correct Answer
    C. Breech
    Explanation
    A breech presentation refers to the position of a baby in the womb where the buttocks or feet are positioned to come out first during delivery, instead of the head. This is considered abnormal because the head is typically the part of the baby that should come out first for a safe and smooth delivery.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is uterus. The uterus is the organ in which the fetus develops during pregnancy. It provides a safe and nourishing environment for the fetus to grow and develop. The cervix is the lower part of the uterus that connects to the vagina. The placenta is an organ that develops during pregnancy and provides oxygen and nutrients to the fetus.

    Correct Answer
    D. 38-42
    Explanation
    The average pregnancy lasts about 38-42 weeks. This is the typical duration of a full-term pregnancy, which is calculated from the first day of the woman's last menstrual period to the birth of the baby. It is important for a pregnancy to reach this length in order for the baby to fully develop and be ready for delivery. Any pregnancy that lasts less than 37 weeks is considered premature, while pregnancies that go beyond 42 weeks may be considered overdue and may require medical intervention.

    • D.

      Delivery of the baby until the expulsion of the placenta

    Correct Answer
    C. From full dilation of the cervix to the delivery of the baby
    Explanation
    The second stage of labor is best described as the period from full dilation of the cervix to the delivery of the baby. This stage begins when the cervix is fully dilated (open) and the baby's head is in the birth canal. During this stage, the mother will experience strong contractions and will actively push to help deliver the baby. Once the baby is born, the second stage of labor is considered complete.

      Infant

      Toddler

    • D.

      Baby

    Correct Answer
    A. Neonate
    Explanation
    A child one month old is considered a neonate because the term neonate refers to a newborn baby up to 28 days old. This stage is characterized by the baby's transition from the womb to the outside world, and they are still in the early stages of development and adjustment to their new environment. The term infant typically refers to a baby from one month to one year old, while toddler and baby are more general terms that can be used to describe children in different age ranges.
