Natural childbirth, an incredible experience
Historically, most women have given birth at home without emergency medical care. At the beginning of the industrial revolution, home delivery became more difficult because of the crowding of living spaces and the deterioration of living conditions.

Natural childbirth is a rather technical way of giving birth by letting nature take its course. This can include:

Do the labor and delivery without the help of drugs, including painkillers such as the epidural.

Use little or no artificial medical interventions such as continuous fetal monitoring or episiotomies.

Allow the woman to lead the labor and delivery process and manage it in the most comfortable way.

Many women with low-risk pregnancies choose to go to nature to avoid any potential risk that the medication could present to the mother or baby. But many women choose natural childbirth to feel more in touch with the baby.

Indeed, studies show that skin-to-skin contact between the mother and her newborn immediately after birth is beneficial for the mother and the baby. A World Health Organization study found that skin-to-skin contact between mother and baby after birth reduces crying, improves mother-child interaction, and helps mothers to breastfeed successfully. They recommend that newborns be allowed to bond with the mother for two hours after birth, during which time they tend to be more alert than during the next few hours.

It is important to note that today, there are hospitals and non-hospitals that supervise natural childbirth. But in case of high-risk pregnancy, it is best to give birth in a hospital to receive all necessary medical care.
