Why the increased popularity in natural childbirth?

For many moms-to-be, it means more control over the events of labor without the adverse effects of painkillers. Women in increasing numbers are also considering natural childbirth as a more favorable option over sometimes run-of-the-mill labor rooms in modern medical centers.

In turn, the medical establishment is recognizing the increased demand for a more personal approach to pregnancy and labor.

Hospitals in the US and worldwide now offer the services of certified RNs who have been trained in the practices of traditional midwives and doulas who have for centuries given women the emotional and psychological support necessary at this crucial time in their lives.

Meanwhile, husbands are also increasingly invited to play a larger part in the natural labor process.
