Solution :-

After the complete development of the foetus in the mother’s womb, the process of giving birth to a newborn baby is called Parturition. Oxytocin and Relaxin are the two hormones required in this entire process. Oxytocin results in the contraction of smooth muscles of the myometrium of the uterus, which pushes the fully formed foetus towards the birth canal. On the opposite hand, the relaxin hormone causes there is relaxation of the pelvic ligaments by a hormone called relaxin and it thus prepares the uterus for childbirth.
