Benefits of vaginal (natural) delivery
- The infant is born through a natural canal called the vagina. This is beneficial for both mother and infant.
- After a vaginal (natural) birth, the body returns to initial state very quickly.
- Another benefit of vaginal (natural) delivery is the embrace of the mother and baby is immediately after delivery, and mother can breastfeed her baby immediately after delivery.
- The pressure applied to the baby’s chest as it passes through the delivery canal is good for the baby’s lung to maturation.
- The difference between a vaginal (natural) and Cesarean Delivery.
- The mother’s bleeding rate in a normal delivery is about half that of a cesarean delivery. In a normal delivery, the mother loses about 500 cc of blood, but in a cesarean delivery, she loses 1 to 1.5 liters of blood.
In cesarean delivery, a large incision is made in the abdomen and is considered a type of surgery, with complications such as uterine adhesions and internal abdominal adhesions, and further infection and pain for the mother.
Even mothers who endure the pain of a normal delivery and have an emergency cesarean delivery during delivery have more successful breastfeeding than mothers who have a voluntary cesarean section due to the secretion of the hormone oxytocin. In cesarean delivery, mothers cannot start breastfeeding immediately after delivery due to anesthesia or spinal anesthesia, and baby born by cesarean delivery have a lower level of consciousness than those born with vaginal (natural) delivery.
