To have the best chance at achieving an unmedicated birth, you need to have these three things.
A Certified Nurse Midwife
A midwife’s approach to care is drastically different than 99% of the doctors out there and they are familiar and comfortable with the process of natural birth.
Like any challenging process, having a natural birth takes preparation. A birth class will tell you what to expect, show you comfort measures and allow you time to practice a variety of relaxation and breathing techniques and make you more comfortable with the process of birth.
A doula will help suggest and implement comfort measures, encourage you, assist your partner to care for himself and for you and offer a calming presence.
