Complete Support in the Labor and Birth in the best possible way

It’s the event you have been happily (and nervously) anticipating for months : your baby’s birth! Many pregnant couples have wondered just how labor will feel, how long it will take and can my partner support me during this journey.

You may be planning a natural birth but there are times when your healthcare provider must intervene for health and safety reasons. When a medical intervention is suggested or presented as routine procedure, ask about the benefits, risks, alternatives, and whether you can do the procedure later – or not at all. Research shows that many times interventions are done more for convenience sake than for medical reasons. Knowing about these interventions will help you to make the right choices and express your wishes to your care provider so that when you go through them in case you have to, you are well prepared for its benefits and risks.

The decision to have a cesarean can arise before labor, often called a planned or scheduled cesarean. The decision might also happen in labor. This might be because it is thought that labor is taking too long, mother or baby is not tolerating labor well, or other issues arise. This is typically called an unplanned C section. In a few cases, it will be a true emergency. So it is important to be prepared for all, even though you are headstrong about having a Natural Birth. It lets your fear be addressed about a surgical birth or a birth out of your expectation.
