7. Doctors & Midwives Stand Prepared

Many believe that a midwife is not prepared for any sort of slight emergency, such as the cord around baby's neck, which is entirely not true. They have been given training to handle a number of the problems that can go wrong in childbirth. You must simply make up your mind which preparation you prefer. For doctors, they are prepared to take any means necessary to get your baby here quickly and with as little pain as possible. Their pain-free methods do come with risks, that is true, but they are there for you if you so choose. On the other hand, a midwife stands prepared to help you, coach you, and guide you through the natural birth process that is in you to do.

They are prepared to handle things that can go wrong and see to it your baby and you are safe through the experience. They know when medical intervention is needed and will see to it you get to a doctor quickly, should the need arise. Midwives are wonderful friends that will guide you through the greatest moment of your life!

Ok, so it sounds a bit biased, I know. I cannot help myself, though, in a way, after having watched "The Business of Being Born" the other day! It was an eye-opener in every way, let me tell you! However, I do hope that this article on Pros and Cons of Midwives vs Doctors sheds some light on the birth experience and helps you to make the choice most beneficial to you as you welcome your baby into the world.
