NATURAL CHILDBIRTH

Natural childbirth is a method of delivering babies with minimal surgical intervention, and is more widely being opted for by women across the globe. More women are electing to have a midwife guide them through the process of delivery at home or at a birthing center.

Advantages

Giving birth to a child by the natural method has some advantages over other methods

  • It is a faster method
  • There is no risk of damage to the baby's brain due to any medications or surgical instruments used in other methods
  • The baby arrives in a much more alert state, as no drugs are used
  • It psychologically empowers the mother

Preparation

  • The midwife arranges the mother in the most comfortable position possible
  • Various methods may be used for natural childbirth, with water birth being opted for more frequently. It consists of a tub filled with water that is heated to 900 F- 1010 F.

Precautions

  • Only trained midwives should be asked to carry out the process of delivery, if not a doctor
  • The room where the mother is to give birth has to be kept hygienic and clean at all times
  • Always be ready to call a doctor in case of any complications

Procedure

  • The preheated water relaxes the mother's back and pelvic muscles, and also adds buoyancy to the baby, which helps the baby to come down more easily
  • Once the baby arrives, the mother is asked to cut the umbilical cord hers

Medications

  • The midwives usually avoid using drugs, as there is a risk of affecting the baby
  • To alleviate labor pains, however, epidurals may be used

Risks

  • Natural childbirth is quite safe for normal, uncomplicated pregnancies, and it matters very little whether the birth is given at home or at the hospital.

Follow up

  • The mother is asked to breastfeed the baby within an hour of birth
  • Proper care of health and hygiene should be taken in the room where the mother and baby are kept
