These assets that I've linked together in this pathway show that the whole film is meant to be a gestation period until the end (the present) when Orlando and her child are born. Rather than showing actual birth though, Sally Potter decided to follow "BIRTH" with a story draft for a publisher to read. The draft in the film is presumably a culmination of the entire story of Orlando's life, that we just saw. We might think also about the film as (figuratively) Sally Potter's child, based on these findings.
