Paid birth: strengths and weaknesses

Paid birth Today women are increasingly afraid of inattention, and sometimes even rudeness public obstetric services.Someone is trying to solve the problems of the traditional way, by paying the doctor, but more and more people are resorting to formal paid services.What do they get by paying for childbirth?

if the contract included an anesthesiologist, it also examines a woman even before birth, if necessary, appoint her to the survey, recommends the most appropriate method for herselfanesthesia.During labor, the anesthesiologist, specified in the contract, also called.The midwife and neonatologist present for the birth.


ability to choose the method of obstetrics

woman can choose the method of childbirth.But it is better if it is made after the inspection and interviews with individual obstetrician-gynecologist, as she herself can be difficult to sort out this issue.Maternity can accompany physiological labor, and can quickly (cesarean section).The contract, some women report that they want, or, on the contrary, refuse those or other techniques used during childbirth (eg, induction of labor).If this is done without consulting a doctor, then at birth can bind his hands, while the technique may be necessary it is for this woman.Sometimes the choice of birthing in the contract specifies one, and in fact a woman with her consent provides other services, whereas in the contract have been changed after the fact.

During labor a woman is provided with all necessary medicines and materials that will be required in the case of surgery.


Terms of delivery and hospital stay

presence childbirth husband or other relatives

women relate differently to the possibility of the presence of relatives at birth.Some categorically do not like, others feel more secure, especially in the presence of her husband.In recent times, instead of relatives in childbirth present girlfriend, who already have experience of giving birth.In any case, a person present at the birth, should be screened to avoid infections such as tuberculosis Tuberculosis - a full recovery is not guaranteed Tuberculosis - a full recovery is not guaranteed , syphilis Syphilis - punishment Venus Syphilis - punishment of Venus .In addition, it should be exactly what happens during labor, it is impossible to prevent the unprepared man in the delivery room, it not only does not help, but will not interfere.Therefore, fathers who want to attend the birth, must attend school with his wife, mother.


labor analgesia

If a woman is afraid of the pain, then we can discuss in advance the method of labor analgesia.Orient in this respect a woman anesthetist.Today, labor analgesia is most commonly used epidural and spinal anesthesia - the introduction of the anesthetic in the spinal cord.Less frequent intravenous and inhalation anesthesia.

More often anesthesia delivery is carried out by natural means, that the future mother taught in a school of motherhood - a pain relief using special breathing techniques.

Pay childbirth - it is certainly not only comfort but also a more attentive staff.
