Normal Delivery

Normal delivery, otherwise called vaginal delivery or natural birth, is the process of delivering a baby between 36 and 42 weeks of pregnancy. Natural delivery is helpful for both mother and child, as it reduces the risks associated with C-sections. Natural delivery helps to have lactation faster as natural mothering hormones are produced quickly. There is a contraction of the cervix, causing dilation and continued stretching of the cervix, resulting in the baby's delivery.
