Vaginal delivery is the birth of a baby by way of the vagina. This is a completely natural and normal process, and intervention by your doctor occurs only if needed.
An obstetrician is trained to manage all eventualities that can occur during labour.
A successful vaginal delivery begins with comprehensive, personalised antenatal care conducted in a holistic manner. The birthing process begins with labour, which is different for every woman. Vaginal delivery is recommended because of its significant health benefits for both you and your baby.
