  • 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
