Birth Methods

Choosing which birth method is right for you can be a hard task. Although there are only two basic birth methods, vagina delivery, and surgical delivery by cesarean section, there are different delivery practices. The ultimate goal of both delivery methods is to give birth to a healthy baby safely. 

  • Vaginal delivery is a prevalent birth method. Sometimes, though, the mother needs a bit of assistance. It is called Assisted Vaginal Delivery, which includes different types – e.g., induced labor, forceps extractions, etc.
  • Surgical delivery by C-section is mostly planned birth for different medical reasons; in most cases, it is because a vaginal delivery is too risky for both Mom and baby. Sometimes though, it is not scheduled, the doctor may change plans to a C- section during a vaginal delivery when problems or complications arise.

Alternative Birth Locations

Alternative birthing centers gaining its popularity in the past years, where they offer a natural delivery and highly personal care, often in a setting that feels like home.

So, how do you decide which is a better fit for you, whether a hospital or a birth center?

Here are some things to consider:

  • Check with your health care provider if he or she can only practice at a particular hospital or birth center.
  • Check with your health insurance provider about your coverage. Most often, insurance companies cover accredited hospitals and birth centers.
  • There are risk factors that limit you to deliver in a birth center, like having multiples babies, gestational diabetes, high blood pressure, and breech- positioned babies.
  • Epidural is not an option at the birth center.
  • Check if you have a low or high-risk pregnancy.

Birth Centers

Most birth centers are like hospitals but feel more like home. It is a healthcare facility, staffed with OB/GYN, nurses, midwives, and it emphasizes personal attention and care, which may include a more extended prenatal visit and continuous support all through labor and beyond. You get prenatal care, a place to give birth, and a place to go for your postpartum checkups. They often offer childbirth education and breastfeeding classes, and most of them offer a backup hospital nearby and a doctor on call in case of an emergency.

Each birth center is different, so you may want to visit some of them to make sure it has the amenities you need/want.
