Natural Birth

From start (when to conceive) to finish (how to deliver), pregnancy is full of personal choices. There’s no “right” way to welcome a baby into the world, and all types of childbirth are natural. The term “natural birth” has historically been used to refer to vaginal labor and delivery with limited to no medical intervention; it can involve a variety of choices, from the doctor you choose to the pain relief you use. You’ll probably hear the term “natural childbirth” used to describe a vaginal delivery without medication for pain or to start or speed up labor.

"Natural Birth"

If you’re planning a natural childbirth in a traditional hospital setting, you’ll want to discuss your wishes and goals explicitly with your caregiver. Find out which interventions are considered routine at the hospital and how you might get around them.

Many women choose a midwife to guide them through natural childbirth. Midwives are trained to help you cope with the demands of a medication-free labor and often stay with you throughout labor, which doctors typically do not.

If you plan to have your baby at a hospital or birthing center, your doctor or midwife can help you choose the best time to go. Depending on preferences, you might be monitored constantly, such as with a fetal heart monitor, just monitored as necessary, or monitored at regular intervals to make sure everything is going smoothly.
