There are more delivery options available for women than ever before here in the United States. While some may seem desirable, the physicians at Marietta OB-GYN Affiliates, P.A. believe that a hospital delivery is the safest place for delivery. There is a lot that can happen during labor and delivery, and being in a hospital with medical professionals who are able to assist in any sort of medical emergency situation is vital to protecting both the mother and her unborn baby or babies. For women who want to try having a VBAC or who have had a high-risk pregnancy, the only option for them is to have a hospital delivery. However, just because you may be required to give birth in a hospital, that does not mean that you still do not have options when it comes to delivery.
Many women wish to give birth naturally without drugs (or at least try to). At Marietta OB-GYN Affiliates, P.A., we are more than happy to allow women to go for natural childbirth if that is the method that they choose. Of course, we are always near by if a mother changes her mind and wishes to use pain medications. There are also women who need to be induced because their pregnancies have gone past their due dates, or because their bodies are not progressing through early labor and need an extra push to get them into full labor. Of course, women also have the option for a cesarean section, although we try to limit the use of this delivery option to emergency situations where the baby is breech, unable to pass through the birth canal, or if the mother or baby’s health may be compromised through a vaginal delivery.
The physicians at Marietta OB-GYN Affiliates, P.A. understand that labor and delivery are very personal experiences for each family, and we strive to make your experience one that you will treasure for a lifetime. The moment you meet your bundle (or bundles!) of joy is a spectacular moment, and we are here to ensure that your delivery is a beautiful experience. If you are looking for a trust OB-GYN who is compassionate, sensitive, and provides the highest standard of care, then please contact Marietta OB-GYN Affiliates, P.A. today.
