Birth and Delivery Q & A
What should I know before my birth and delivery experience?
In most cases, your body starts preparing you for birth and delivery about a month before. When your body goes into active labor, you should call your doctor first.
Your physician at Nurture Women’s Health will want to know if your water has broken and the timing of your contractions. If you’re contracting every 3-5 minutes over an hour-long period, lasting 45-60 seconds, you should go to the hospital.
If your contractions are sporadic and you want to speed up the process, you can go for a walk. This may help shift your baby into your pelvis, putting pressure on your cervix to help your baby move along.
What can I expect before and after birth and delivery?
At Nurture Women's Health, your health and pregnancy are their top priority. To advocate that, your medical professionals strongly believe in developing a strong, trusting relationship between the patient and physician with communication.
Whether you’re experiencing a healthy or high-risk pregnancy, your doctor develops a personalized care plan for your specific condition and needs.
If your pregnancy is high-risk, your doctor at Nurture Women’s Health has the knowledge and experience to walk with you and monitor you closely throughout your pregnancy.
Can I have a vaginal birth if I’ve had a cesarean?
With cesarean deliveries, you have higher risks for blood clots, infections, and complications from anesthesia than you do with vaginal births.
Nurture Women’s Health is known for its expertise in vaginal births after cesarean (VBAC) and its low cesarean (C-section) rate for childbirth and delivery.
Attempting a VBAC requires a trial of labor after cesarean (TOLAC), meaning your goal is to deliver your baby vaginally. Even though there are pros and cons to consider, Nurture Women’s Health believes you should have the choice to pursue a TOLAC, if desired. You’ll have the opportunity to talk to your doctor about your decision.
Benefits of a VBAC include:
- Avoiding another scar on your uterus
- Less recovery time
- Less time spent in the hospital
- Lower risk of infections
- Your birthing partner has a more active role during delivery
