English term or phrase: caudal lip (SEE SENTENCE)
When the cervix is dilating it’s coming down on the baby’s head and sometimes there’s a little piece left in the caudal lip, and it’s just staying there and she wants to push really hard, but if she pushes that lip, or that little piece of cervix that’s left, is going to swell up and that’s not good.

Está hablando una partera. Quizás alguien esté familiarizado con el término o sepa a qué se refiere porque conoce del tema. En mi caso, no entiendo mucho. ¡Muchas gracias!
