Ways to Give Birth (Caesarean Section)
Homebirth, natural child birth, Medicated Birth, Water Birth, Hypno-birthing, are some of the methods used to give birth today. The main method of giving birth surgically/medically today is through a Caesarean Section.
A Caesarean section is usually performed when a vaginal delivery would put the baby’s or mother’s life or health at risk, it is a surgical procedure in which one or more incisions are made through a mother’s abdomen (laparotomy) and uterus (hysterotomy) to deliver babies. C-Sections have been getting more popular within the United States today, to a point where a lot of hospitals only perform C-sections due to a higher success rate. The surgical methods of giving birth has evolved a lot through history.
OBGYN is often thought of as a medical field for women, and sometimes thought of easier than other fields. It is true that majority of people in OB are women.. The coolest thing about OBGYN has to be that it incorporates surgical aspects, patient interaction, and medical diagnosis all in one field. There is no other field that really gets to incorporate all of these.
