Vaginal birth vs. C-Section: Pros & cons
Aug 25, 2021, 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm
Normal delivery is often considered to be the first choice and the safer option because it’s the natural process. First time mothers often prefer normal delivery, if they want to have more babies in the future. Women who undergo normal delivery avoid having many major surgical risks, such as scarring, severe bleeding, infection, and post pregnancy pain. The recovery time and hospital stays are shorter compared to caesarean. Normal delivery also benefits your baby as the baby ingests some protective bacteria while travelling through the birth canal which boosts their immune system.
A caesarean is planned which makes it convenient for the mother to prepare herself mentally for the birth and schedule it in advance. If you are going to deliver a big baby it will avoid the risk of him/her getting injured during the process.
Caesarean childbirth is a surgical process which leads to blood loss and may result in the mother being susceptible to infection and blood clots. The hospital stays and recovery period is longer as compared to normal delivery. The reason why mothers often choose normal delivery is because once she has had her first C-section, she’s most likely to have a C-section in her future delivery which may put her at a risk of future pregnancy complications.
