Pros of Natural Childbirth

Updated: Mar 7, 2021

Natural (or vaginal) birth is usually recommended over a caesarean section in women with uncomplicated pregnancies and no previous C-sections because it is a more natural process for mother and baby.

Recovery in general, is also quicker for those who undergo vaginal birth compared to a C-section.

The hospital stay is shorter for vaginal birth with a lower risk of needing readmission to hospital.

Babies delivered naturally are also less likely to develop breathing difficulties right after birth, compared to those born via C-section. Consequently, babies are less likely to require neonatal intensive care admission.

Statistically, the least amount of long term and short term complications is associated with successful vaginal births.
