Pregnant women enjoy different birthing options. They can stay at home and hire a midwife or doula. Others prefer a hospital delivery with an ob/gyn, where they have access to pain relief through an epidural. You may need to be rushed to the hospital for a cesarean section if your newborn needs neonatal care. There are definite benefits to each choice. If you're considering hiring a natural delivery expert, there are considerations to keep in mind. The goal of a home delivery is to keep the expectant mother in a soothing environment. Lamaze classes will help teach you pain relieving methods. Many hospital settings are busy and harsh lighting makes it hard to focus on staying calm. The pregnant mother may want personal items close by helping to calm her during delivery. Midwives deliver your newborn in your own comfortable bed or a soothing bath for a stress-free water delivery. There are risks with a home delivery. High blood pressure complicates a delivery. A gynecologist and a nurse will regularly check blood pressure readings. Deliveries of twins can be complicated and require special care. If the baby has not turned around or is in distress, an ob/gyn may need to do an emergency cesarean section. After the expected due date passes, it may be best for labor to be induced by a trained gynecologist or obstetrician. Delivering should be done on your terms. Ensure the person you choose is happy to follow your delivery plan. If you've decided to go with a midwife, make sure that person has someone they trust and know at the local hospital. If you do have to be moved to the hospital, make sure it's okay for your support team to accompany you. Call local birth centers or lamaze classes for recommendations.

Midwives are professionals trained in taking care of a woman during pregnancy, labor and delivery. Midwives are usually women, and typically operate outside of traditional hospital settings. Pregnant women who use midwives want extra support to help them deliver the baby naturally and in a calm environment without medical intervention if possible. Such experiences typically happen in home situations, where the woman labors and delivers her baby at home without the aid of drugs or epidurals. Expecting women who choose not to see a traditional obstetrician or OB/GYN during their pregnancy, and have uncomplicated pregnancies, often hire midwives or doulas to guide them through the entire pregnancy, labor, delivery, birth and immediate newborn care. Midwives can perform cesarean sections or episiotomies if needed, but the rate is much lower than with traditional doctors in hospitals. Women can opt for a home birth, as long as there is no expected complication, and mother and baby are not considered high risk, such as with twins or other multiple births. Midwives will usually not induce labor, but will let it take its natural course. Midwives can help the expecting mother with Lamaze classes during pregnancy, provide the pregnant mother with prenatal care, offer emotional support throughout the pregnancy and labor, give advice on the most comfortable positions during natural vaginal labor, and provide postpartum and newborn support, especially if the infant needs NICU care. You can find a midwife in your area by looking in the phone book or by checking online directory listings. You can also ask your doctor for recommendations on a midwife. New parents can also give you advice.
