I am not sure if I will watch the video- but thanks for the link. I want to as I am curious- but what exactly is it a video of?

so the uterus is not opening but actually squeezing/pushing out the baby?

The video is just a simulation of a uterus pushing out a baby, and you can kind of see how the contractions are pushing the baby down against the cervix to dilate it - it's kind of like scientific animation, if that makes sense.

Yep, the uterus is just squeezing/pushing the baby down against the cervix to dilate it, not opening up itself.
