Normal childbirth delivery, or natural labour, is the childbirth through the vagina without any surgery. Childbirth should be done by women specialist doctors or certified mid-wives, and shouldn't be done on your own without any medical supervision.
Caesarean Delivery, also known as C-section, is a surgical procedure performed through an incision or a cut of the abdomen in order to deliver the baby out from the mother's uterus. C-section can be done electively according to the mother's preference, or as an emergency measure in cases where natural vaginal delivery has failed. You can discuss with your doctor to see which childbirth procedure is the most suitable for you.
An assisted forceps delivery, or also known as a vacuum delivery, is a type of assisted vaginal delivery in the process of natural childbirth. In an assisted forceps delivery, your doctor uses a pair of forceps to guide the baby out of the birth canal as the mother pushes during the delivery process. Assisted forceps delivery is usually done when you have a health concern or if there are complications during natural childbirth.
Both obstetricians and gynaecologists specialize in women health, focusing on the female reproductive system. Obstetricians do specialized practice in pregnancy and childbirth, why gynaecologists specialize in women reproductive health conditions. If you have a health condition or a pregnancy that you wish to get medical advice for, you can consult an obstetrician or gynaecologist (women specialist).
