New born baby who has just been delivered is handed to his mother by the hospital midwife who helped with the birth. The epidural anesthesia filter and catheter can be seen attached to mothers chest. The midwife is using a sonicaid. This equipment allows the midwife to monitor the baby's heart rate. The infant, who is still covered in vernix is having his umbilical cord cut.
