The same scene, side view, with husband and midwife supporting her.
She's given a push; note the baby's feet have emerged first, it is a breech birth.
The moon in the sky is a symbol of fertility.

I trust these count as life drawing.
The model for these was really pregnant.
She just took up a position as though giving birth.
