Why Choose Natural Childbirth?
Natural childbirth, although it may sound more difficult due to pain management solely through natural methods, is generally easier in most cases and has many advantages.
Specifically, the advantages of natural childbirth include:
- Greater control and a more active role for the pregnant woman in the childbirth process, which contributes to her empowerment, increased self-confidence, and generally a more positive childbirth experience.
- The reduction of complications arising from drugs used in childbirth, such as nausea and high blood pressure.
- Faster completion of childbirth, as the pregnant woman has a full sense of contractions and can thus assist more effectively during the baby's expulsion phase.
- More effective initiation of breastfeeding, as both mother and newborn are alert and do not experience relaxation due to drugs.
- Faster recovery and restoration of the mother, both due to the absence of drugs and the release of endorphins.
- Lower likelihood of the need for medical intervention to accelerate childbirth.
However, natural childbirth is not achievable for every pregnant woman. Even if you have consciously chosen natural childbirth, it may ultimately not be possible due to problems that may arise. Or you may ultimately struggle to manage the pain and request an epidural or other anaesthesia. You can change your mind at any stage of the process during childbirth without feeling guilty. The important thing is to try if you wish.
