Myometrium in Childbirth
The Outer layer of myometrium is arranged in vertical stripes and is designed to push a fetus down and out of the birth canal.
The Middle Layer of muscle cells are organized in a way that can generate forces in any axis necessary to accommodate a fetus in any size and position during childbirth.
The Inner Layer is organized as horizontal rings which help move the fetus downwards with parastaltic action. This is the layer of muscle shared by all mammals during birth.
