Normal Delivery: Embracing the Natural Process

A normal delivery, also known as vaginal birth, is a natural and beautiful way of bringing your baby into the world. This birthing option involves delivering your baby through the birth canal, passing through the cervix and vagina. Dr Hammond supports normal deliveries for low-risk pregnancies, as it allows the baby to experience the gentle journey of being born.

The Process of Normal Delivery:

Labour Onset: The onset of labour is marked by contractions that help the cervix dilate and efface, creating a passage for the baby to descend.

Cervical Dilation: As labour progresses, the cervix dilates to about 10 centimetres to allow the baby’s head to pass through.

Pushing Phase: During this stage, you’ll work in tandem with your body to push your baby gently through the birth canal.

Baby’s Arrival: As the baby’s head emerges, Dr Randall Hammond will guide the delivery, followed by the rest of the baby’s body.

Benefits of Normal Delivery:

Faster Recovery:

Recovery time is typically shorter after a normal delivery, allowing you to bond with your baby more quickly.

 

Bonding Experience:

Normal delivery promotes skin-to-skin contact, facilitating a close connection with your baby.

 

Hormonal Benefits:

The natural process of childbirth triggers the release of oxytocin, enhancing bonding and promoting breastfeeding.

 

Caesarean Section: A Gentle and Safe Alternative

A Caesarean section, commonly known as C-section, is a surgical procedure where the baby is delivered through an incision made in the mother’s abdomen and uterus. Dr Hammond may recommend a C-section for various reasons, such as medical conditions, previous surgical history, or concerns during pregnancy.

 

The Process of a Caesarean Section:

Preparation: Before the surgery, you’ll receive anaesthesia to ensure a painless and comfortable delivery.

Incision: Dr Hammond will make an incision in the abdomen and uterus to access the baby.

 

Baby’s Delivery: The baby is carefully lifted from the uterus and gently delivered.

Closing Incisions: After delivery, the incisions are carefully closed to facilitate proper healing.

 

Benefits of a Caesarean Section:

 

Planned Birth:

C-sections can be scheduled, allowing for better preparation and organization.

 

Controlled Environment:

The controlled environment of a C-section provides an added layer of safety for both you and your baby.

 

Addressing Medical Concerns:

A C-section may be necessary to address specific medical concerns, ensuring the best possible outcome for you and your baby.
