What is Normal Birth? Part 3

We've talked about what Normal Birth is, and we've talked about interventions that can support the Normal Birth process. But, what interventions are not involved in Normal Birth? What interventions would mean labor has gone "off the tracks" of Normal Birth?

I tackle these questions in my latest video!

Interventions Outside of Normal Birth
  1. Instrumental Delivery - Assisted delivery with the use of forceps or vacuum extractor
  2. Cesarean Delivery - Surgical delivery via cesarean section
  3. Breech Baby - Delivery of baby in the breech position, where the baby's presenting part is the buttocks or feet instead of the head. Vaginal or surgical delivery of breech babies are not considered Normal Birth.
  4. Vaginal Birth After Cesarean (VBAC) - Attempted and/or successful vaginal delivery where mother has had a previous cesarean birth.
