Advantages of Natural Birth
Dr. Jason James, Obstetrician and Gynecologist with Baptist Health South Florida, highlights natural birth is vaginal delivery as opposed to C-section and it is also completely natural with no medications or no induction or epidural.
He says cesarean section means major abdominal surgery and a longer hospitalization, a longer recovery, and there is more risk associated with surgery, like injury to the mother or baby, as opposed to a vaginal delivery.
it’s longer hospitalization longer recovery and there’s more risks associated with surgery like injury to
the mom or injury to the baby as opposed to a vaginal delivery in terms of the advantages of a natural childbirth I
think that’s really a patient preference you know in this day and age when we have the availability of pain medication of epidurals for anesthesia I think if patients want to take advantage of that that’s great but it’s
really a preference should a mom to be prepared differently for our natural childbirth. I think certainly if you want to try and have a natural childbirth where you don’t have any pain medication maybe utilizing certain techniques to minimize their experience of pain like Lamaze classes which is using breathing techniques to help with the pain there’s something called hypnobirthing there are a lot of different options having good labor support whether that’s your husband or another family member mom or sister or even a doula sometimes can help patients experience that that childbirth with a little less discovery you.
