Natural Childbirth



Giving birth is one of the most miraculous and painful experiences a person can go through. Over time, though different traditions have developed different methods and practices to lessen the risk and pain of childbirth, some feel that Western medicine has reduced a soulful experience to a medical procedure. Many people prefer to give birth “naturally”: without routine medical interventions such as anesthesia or surgery. Of course, such decisions should be made in consultation with healthcare professionals, and sometimes medical interventions become necessary to save mother and/or child if complications arise during the process of labor and delivery. Whatever choice for delivery a pregnant person makes, the process of childbirth is no less significant or meaningful.
