Labor and Delivery

Child birth include Labor and Delivery. There are three stages of natural childbirth. In the first stage cervix is completely dilated and effaced. Second stage involves the exact delivery of baby. The third stage follows the birth of the baby through the birth of the placenta. The major two tests done during labour and delivery are pelvic exam and monitoring of foetal. Pelvic exam decides the progression of labour and foetal monitoring detects the baby’s heart rate and response to uterine contractions. Preparing for labour and childbirth should start early in pregnancy. Having proteins, complex carbohydrates found in fruits and grains, vegetables, beans and vitamins C and A rich foods from the beginning of pregnancy would help in making your delivery far easier. Prepare mentally for that day, to see it through rather than worrying about it as the most painful experience. Women adequately prepared are innately able to give birth without routine medical interventions. A woman who is supported to labour is a woman who will likely feel positive about her birth experience and future parenting skills. And the baby is more able to be alert and promoting maternal bonding and breastfeeding is more likely to be enjoyable and successful..
