Natural Hospital Birth Tip By Kelly Whitehead

The rates of C-sections are steadily climbing, and with a national rate at higher than 30% of women having sections; this is a real concern for many.

Before the Big Day- Tips to Help You Get What You Want: Educate yourself Interview prospective doctors/midwives prior to pregnancy or early on. Consider getting a doula

Educate yourself You need to be knowledgeable about what you want for the baby's birth, i.e. preferences to avoid pain medicines, episiotomies, side effects from various meds, etc. Understanding the birth process, as well as the pros and cons of your choices is key to making better decisions.

Interview prospective doctors/midwives prior to pregnancy or early on Pick a provider who supports your plan. Ask other moms, doulas, lactation groups and such for a referral. Ask about their C-section rates and rates of episiotomies. Chances are a high C-section rate is a good warning sign. If your doctor isn't supportive or you have concerns, move on.

Consider having a doula Make sure you have a solid, knowledgeable, calm (very important, think the opposite of the panicking dad) support system. Research has shown that in many hospitals, less than 10% of nurses' time is actually spent with the laboring mom, so don't depend on nurses to be your coach. Having a doula has shown to decrease the length of labor, decrease the rate of C-sections and epidurals, increase the families overall satisfaction with the birth and a slew of other great benefits.
