There are a lot of childbirth methods today. All of them are unique and use quite different techniques. The Bradley method is one of the most celebrated childbirth methods. It is considered to be the only method which is completely natural. The proponents of the given method tell about the danger of different obstetrical procedures, such as regional anaesthesia, episiotomy and sonograms. They also stress the fact that the woman is able to give birth to the child without use of any drugs and medical interventions. The advocates of the method tell that it is better to use the service of midwives rather than of technically-oriented doctors. It is parents who should be responsible for the procedures, the birth place and the emergency back-up.
Bradley teaches muscle relaxation and conditioning exercises during the labor. The approach of the method can be characterized as take-your-time, deep breathing and slow. The environment is supposed to be pillow-laden, unlit and quite. The baby is breastfed immediately after the birth.
While speaking about the difference of the Bradley method and other childbirth methods, it can be by right called unique. The classes of this method concentrate on the importance of healthy families, healthy mother and her baby.
The Bradley classes teach that childbirth should be natural. It gives a lot of advantages to the baby. One of the advantages is the absence of side effects during the birth and the labor. At the classes the couples are taught to have natural births. The techniques used for that are effective and simple. The techniques are based on the information about the way the human body works during the labor. The couples are taught how they can minimize the pain and make the labors more comfortable through the work with their bodies.
The Bradley classes teach not only moms-to-be. They also provide coach training. Coaches as well as mothers can have some difficulties during the labor. That is why they need special training. The labor is not a sport for spectators. The classes teach the coaches to help the women during the labor. The coaches learn how to make the woman as healthy as possible, how to support her, how to avoid the unnecessary pain, what to expect in the natural birth course. They are taught a number of relaxation techniques as well as effective birth and labor positions. The classes often provide labor rehearsals and relaxation practice.
The hypno-birthing method is one of the childbirth methods worth mentioning. The method is based on the theory of Dr. Grandly Dick-Read, an English physician. The man is considered to be the pioneer in the sphere of natural childbirth. Mongan method is another unique method of natural and relaxed childbirth education which is enhanced by some hypnosis techniques. It allows women to apply their natural instincts and bring about a more comfortable, easier and safer birthing. This kind of birthing is the best to reflect nature. The emphasis of the method is made on the childbirth, pregnancy and hypno-birthing.
