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.
