One Mom said, "you give birth the way you live life, if you live life in your own way, then you might want to have a birth in your own way."
Introduction of their experiences
Talks about a few different couples experiences with birth at a hospital. They all seemed really enthusiastic about their births. After they seemed as if they were missing something from their birth. They felt like they were treated as a sick person would be with the changing of the clothes and all the monitoring equipment.
The Snowball Effect
The couples talk about there fears when one intervention is started then another one usually has to compensate. One midwife mentioned that may of the protocols are put in place to protect the establishment/hospital and can actually change the labor progression. An anesthesiologist was worried with his wife being pregnant that if she got one then it might lead to a cesarean section. According to their statistics the more monitoring and more epidurals/drugs given the higher the cesarean section rate is. He mentioned that cesections are not as safe as natural or vaginal birth for many reasons: increased infection, mistakes, higher risk of death, morbidity, longer healing rates. For doctors it is easier and lucrative to give a cesarean section.
Various midwives talk about what they do as specializing in the normalcy of pregnancy and birth. They work with woman who are low-risk and help them stay low-risk pregnancies. Obstetricians specialize in the pathology and diagnosis and treatment of birthing women.Read more ›
