As it is known, pregnancy; it is a natural, physiological period. Birth is also a natural event expected after the normal gestation period is completed.
When the woman’s body and the functioning of the reproductive system are examined, it is seen that vaginal delivery is normal delivery. For example; In the woman, a birth canal (consisting of the vagina and the muscles around it) and the second canal, which is located between the pelvic bones, are observed as a natural way.
In addition, after the baby matures in the uterus, uterine contractions called birth pains begin. As a result, the cervix opens and the baby is pushed into this birth canal. When the baby goes down to the birth canal, the mother also starts to get strained and the baby is taken out, that is, the birth is completed. If there is no obstacle normally, this natural process of events and the presence of a birth canal in women show us that the normal is vaginal delivery. This situation creates the emotional bond between mother and baby in a short time.
The mother candidate feels that she feels one step closer to becoming a mother at every stage she experiences birth pain. The oxytocin hormone secreted during the step-by-step delivery process prepares the breast tissue for milk production. The birth process, which progresses slowly in the genital organs of the mother, provides a certain harmony and development.
Vaginal canal and perineum region will be stretched and relaxed with each contraction during the progression of the baby. Progression of the baby with the contraction and relaxation movements in the birth canal allows the respiratory tract to be cleared from the secretions during the birth phase. It helps newborn baby’s respiratory function to adapt easily to life. After the birth process, the oxytocin hormone, which enables the uterus to contract and shrink, is secreted more effectively during vaginal delivery. Therefore, fewer postpartum hemorrhages occur.
The mother can start breastfeeding by having close contact with her baby immediately after the birth. Since the postpartum healing process and recovery is in a much shorter period of time, it is possible to devote more time to the baby and to itself, and it can be included in life more easily.
As a result; woman’s fertility is a renewal process in itself. It is the process of restarting and resuming life. Although this renewal is mostly perceived as the organic renewal of the mother’s body, this is completely due to learning to look at the world through the eyes of her baby and to witness the development and growth of the newborn baby completely.
The mother’s body is cleaned by birth and rejuvenates. But this cleaning and rejuvenation is the self-expression of the baby who wants to say hello to the new life. Every newborn baby is a new hope, a new beginning. But as with any natural event, if problems arise in the natural course of this event, if a vaginal birth is not possible or if pregnancy should be terminated urgently, then a cesarean is applied.
