Normal vaginal delivery is a situation when an infant is born without the use of any drugs or surgical methods. It is considered to be the best way of childbirth even after the introduction of new quicker and less painful ways of delivery. Natural birth can also take place without a doctor’s assistance. In such cases, a midwife plays an important role as she looks after you during and after the process. It does not require the use of too many injections and the time is taken for recovery is much lesser. However, it is also a very painful and exhausting process.
A lower (uterine) segment Caesarean section (LSCS) is the most commonly used type of Caesarean section. It includes a transverse cut 1-2 centimeters above the attachment of the urinary bladder to the uterus, called the Pfannenstiel incision in the lower segment. This type of incision results in less blood loss and is easier to repair than other types of Caesarean sections.
