Celebrities and "natural" deliveries

I really liked this obstetrician’s take on the trend of celebrities discussing their birth plans, parenting styles etc – all before doing it! And the idea that using an epidural is not “natural.” Good, quick read!

  1. Interesting perspective. This begs the question: is “unmedicated delivery” the term that should be used for women who don’t opt for pain meds?

    1. That is EXACTLY the term I use, because I feel that “natural” degrades women who use pain meds or end up with a C-section.

  2. LOVE this article! And I agree, Stephanie, unmedicated delivery does seem more appropriate for those who do not receive pain meds. Women that get an epidural are having a natural delivery, but are simply receiving the meds to help deal with the pain.
