Natural birth in a hospital

To have a natural birth in the hospital takes a bit more effort.

But it is very doable if you go into it prepared. The most important thing you can do to have a natural birth in a hospital is to go in armed with a healthcare provider, either a doctor or midwife, who has total confidence in your ability to give birth naturally and who will do what it takes to help you achieve your goal.

 

Beyond this, you can find a birthing clinic or hospital that supports natural birth, but this can be tricky. Many women are requesting natural birth options, such as birthing tubs, mood lighting, etc, so hospitals may give some appearance of supporting natural birthing practices, without actually training their staff in natural childbirth principles. One way to see if a hospital believes in natural childbirth is to inquire about their cesarean section rate. Many hospitals in the USA and Canada have cesarean section rates of over 20% and many as high as 40% or higher.

 

Other than these two factors of choosing the right healthcare provider and the right hospital, there are many other things you can do to have a natural childbirth in the hospital.

Be prepared to manage your labour with the following coping techniques. 

 

* Massage

 

* Bathing or showering

 

* Listening to music

 

* Deep breathing

 

* Meditation

 

* Yoga

 

* Visualization

 

* Hire a midwife or doula to come to the hospital with you

 

As you can see, most of these things are completely within your control, and not only that, they are things you can practice before you even step in the doors of the hospital.

 

The Peaceful Birth Complete Online Natural Childbirth Course will give you all the information you need to prepare for a peaceful birth in the hospital or at home.

I found that all of the breathing and relaxation techniques were really helpful during labour, especially when things started to get more intense.

Thank you so much, Naomi von Sonnenburg

Because it was my first child, I wanted to be really well prepared for labour. The most valuable thing for me, about taking Elizabeth’s classes was that it removed ALL the fears that I had about childbirth. I was able to easily remain “calm and focused” throughout my labour. Rebecca Bone

I'll never forget you - you brought my beautiful daughter in to this world, It was a very peaceful delivery (though at the hospital and induced) but my daughter is like a little buddha. she is so sensitive, compassionate, with empathy. I like to think your contribution to the start of her life made some impact on her approach to the world. Thank you.

Thank you so much for this wonderful course.  I just delivered my baby a few days ago and had an excellent labour.  I went from 18+ hours for my first baby to only 3 hours this time around.  I found the information very helpful!
