Thoughts of child birth should not stress you. Our body is designed to undergo this natural process. Overthinking can cause stress. In some emergency situations like earthquake, many pregnant women fail to make it to the hospital. Then too they deliver because brain knows what is happening and what next to do. Your stress will make this natural process difficult and your calmness will make it a smooth process.
1- C-section, that is cutting open the belly to remove the baby.
2- Vagina Delivery
a- Vacuum assisted
b- Forcep Assisted
c- Episiotomy ( Cut on Vagina)
Apart from these two, there's VBAC Delivery which means that the first delivery was c-section but the second was Vagina. If the first time was c-section then there 60% to 70% chances of vagina birth in the second time. The chances are taken keeping in mind the health and safety of both the mother and the baby.
