special term for BTS giving birth?

In dogs it's whelping, in cats it's queening, in horses it's foaling, in egg laying reptiles it's clutching, what is it when our blueys give birth?

I think this is what its called: Ovoviviparous— Producing eggs that hatch within the female's body without obtaining nourishment from it.

I know they are ovovivparous, but is there a term for the act of giving birth in blue tongue skinks?

parturition is not just a bluey word though...its just the technical term for giving birth. There probably is not a specific word for blueys...you could pioneer one! :P
