Supporting Unmedicated Birth

At Village Obstetrics, we understand that every birth journey is unique, which is why we’re dedicated to supporting mothers in achieving their desired birthing experience. In a recent discussion, Doctors Mussalli and Worth shared their insights on how they support unmedicated birth at our practice.

“Unmedicated birth is something that many patients over the years have come to us seeking help with,” says Dr. Worth. “When a patient expresses a desire for an unmedicated birth, I always begin by understanding what that means to her. It’s essential to recognize that unmedicated birth doesn’t have a one-size-fits-all definition. Typically, it involves giving birth without an epidural, which alleviates the pain of childbirth.”

Dr. Mussalli emphasizes the significance of acknowledging a woman’s desire for a birth without medication and the benefits it offers for both mother and baby. “It’s crucial to recognize how empowering and beneficial an unmedicated birth can be. Not only does it support the mother’s body, but it also promotes a positive experience for the baby.”

While advancements in science and technology offer options to manage pain during childbirth, Dr. Worth highlights that choosing a vaginal birth is a personal decision. “We have many developments that can alleviate the pain of childbirth, but if unmedicated birth aligns with a patient’s personal goals, we’re here to support them every step of the way.”

Dr. Mussalli acknowledges that achieving a natural birth depends on various circumstances and may not always be feasible. However, he emphasizes the importance of celebrating every step of the journey. “Even if mothers don’t reach their initial goal, empowering them to progress as far as possible is incredibly rewarding. From a medical perspective, it can significantly impact their labor outcome, potentially avoiding unnecessary interventions like a C-section.”

At Village Obstetrics, we’re committed to providing unwavering support to mothers who aspire to have an unmedicated birth. Drs. Mussalli and Worth encourage every woman who desires an unmedicated birth to explore this option and give it a shot. Our team is here to empower and guide you through every step of your birthing journey.
