    Choosing a natural birth and when to make an injury claim against your doctor

    As a modern woman, you are able to choose any way of giving birth that suits you and makes the idea of having a baby easier for you. Many women are the most afraid of giving birth, when it comes to getting through the pregnancy process. Even though you do get a beautiful baby at the end of it, which is what you have been building towards for nine months, this doesn’t make it any more frightening that you do have to give birth at the end.

    A lot of women will want to have a natural birth, as they feel that it is better for them and their child, and want to do things the way women have done for centuries. Here are some of the reasons you could choose this option.

    • It is the most natural way. Women for centuries have been giving birth vaginally, and your body is absolutely built to do this. When it comes to actually pushing the baby out, your body will take over, so there is no way for you to get this wrong, or not to be able to do it. If you need help, the doctors can provide this straight away.
    • It is quicker to heal from. Although many women feel that a caesarian section is cleaner and easier, when it comes to healing and being able to look after your new baby, giving birth naturally is the best way for you to do this. You should be feeling pretty much yourself again within a week or two.
    • It helps you to bond quickly with your baby. Having a surgical procedure means that you don’t instantly get that skin to skin contact with your newborn that encourages you to bond right away. Giving birth naturally allows you to be with your baby as soon as it is born.
    • You experience it more. For many women this is the major reason for choosing a natural birth, as it allows you to really feel everything and have the full experience of giving birth.
