When it comes to giving birth and having babies the first step a dolphin takes towards producing offspring begins with the male dolphin courting the female dolphin. During courtship male dolphins will often compete with one another by vocalizing their interests, giving the female dolphins gifts, fighting other males and using other methods in order to attract a female dolphin.

A dolphin’s belly button marks the spot where the umbilical cord connected him or her to the mother’s placenta inside the womb. When a dolphin gives birth, the umbilical cord connecting her and her baby breaks away and the baby is left with a belly button.

How are baby bottlenose dolphins born? Baby dolphins are typically born tail first so they don't drown before they're able to take their first breath. Like underwater birthings weren't already stressful enough. It's one thing to read about these amazing babies, it's quite another to experience them first hand.

Baby dolphins, or calves, are born after gestation periods of up to 12 months in the mother's womb. Calves begin swimming in the mother's womb as early as 9 weeks into the pregnancy. When baby dolphins are born, they come out of the mother's womb tail first and immediately swim to the surface to breath air.

When dolphins are born, they feed on breast milk. This is because, their mothers have mammary glands. In general, the lactation period of dolphins lasts between 12 and 24 months. Again, the length of breastfeeding time is species dependent.

Like human babies, dolphin babies babble when they are young, trying out different “phonemes” and trying to learn the language. At this stage, their communication does not follow Zipf’s law.

Calves are born in the water. Deliveries are usually tail-first, but head-first deliveries are also seen. The umbilical cord snaps during delivery. Sometimes an assisting dolphin may stay close to the new mother and calf.
