"In the wild, when birth is very close, getting the baby out quickly allows the mother to move to safety" - Niles Newton. 

'The wild' in our culture are car seats, lay-bys and corridors - or even, you could say hospitals themselves - and it is only through rare circumstance or by accident that we witness the curious yet normal and instinctive phenomenon of nature - the "fetal ejection reflex" where the baby emerges without pushing. Something that, in theory arguably most women experience if it were not for the normalised routine disturbance of childbirth.
