As you peel back the mysterious layers of labor and delivery, you'll find that there are only two basic birth methods: normal delivery and cesarean section. 

Cesarean section

A cesarean section, or short cesarean section, is a surgical procedure that is performed when normal delivery is not possible. Sometimes a cesarean section is planned. Sometimes doctors can perform a cesarean section during normal delivery if problems arise. The process is self-explanatory.

Natural delivery

Natural birth is when your baby is born through the birth canal. This is the most common type of delivery as it is the body's natural method. About sixty-eight percent of women give birth normally every year.

A normal birth reduces the risk of your baby developing respiratory problems, asthma, food allergies, and lactose intolerance. Not that this way of giving birth is not without risk babies can experience physical trauma as they pass through the birth canal.
