Finding out you are about to become a mother is an exciting time, but it can also be daunting to think about the months of pregnancy ahead and delivery of your baby. You want to ensure that your baby has the best care, both while they are developing within your body and when they are ready to be brought into the world. Delivery is a very personal experience, so make sure you choose the best option for you and your baby.
Choosing a Delivery Method
After carrying your child for approximately nine months, your little one will be ready to join your family. Although vaginal child birth in a hospital setting is the most common option, there are other choices. Every new mother should consider what is best for them and their baby when it comes to the delivery day.
The first step in making the right choice in delivery is consulting with an experienced OB/GYN. There may be health and safety concerns that can help choose the delivery option that will best suite your situation. Some of the options you can discuss include:
- Natural vaginal child birth
- Vaginal birth with medication for pain
- Cesarean delivery or cesarean with vaginal delivery
Your OB/GYN can discuss any risks you and your new baby may be facing at birth, offering advice about which delivery options will be the safest for you and your child. By understanding what your options are, you can choose the birthing procedure which will make you most comfortable and secure during this amazing time.
