For a wonderful hospital birth
If you have no access to a Birth Center or midwives and aren’t willing to risk a home birth with no care providers, a hospital birth is the way it is, whether right, wrong, good, or bad. We have what we have. No matter how you feel about childbirth or medical care, most births in modern societies take place in a hospital.
In a hospital birth, you will either
- labor and give birth vaginally with a few medical assessments, monitoring, and procedures (AMPs).
- labor and have a surgical birth.
- have a non-laboring surgical delivery.
If you are attempting a vbac (vaginal birth after a Caesarean) in a hospital, it will lead to one of the above births.
At the present time, the number of non-laboring surgical deliveries is on the rise, the number of labors with a vaginal birth is on the decline, and the number of labors ending in surgical deliveries is on the rise. What does this all mean? Hard to say, really, and Birthing Better with the Pink Kit Method® doesn’t dwell on these topics. The facts are what they are.
However, there is something all births have in common: pregnant women are guaranteed to give birth at some point, just because they are pregnant. It’s unavoidable. Something else all births share is that giving birth is an action, an activity you have to do. It’s not just something that happens to you or that you can choose how you’d like to happen. Also, birth takes place over time, so you always have time to fill while doing this activity—so you might as well have skills to fill it with.
For these three reasons, your Birthing Better Pink Kit skills will become your best friend.
