Description: This 3D medical animation shows how the McRoberts maneuver may be used to correct a shoulder dystocia birth during labor and delivery. The video shows the baby's shoulder trapped behind the mother's pubic symphysis at the front of her pelvic bones, preventing a normal vaginal delivery. To correct the problem, the mother's legs are pushed toward her shoulders while lying on her back, thereby expanding the pelvic outlet. An inside view of the mothers pelvis shows the baby's shoulder releasing from the pubic symphysis.
