  Childbirth
Childbirth includes both labor (the process of birth) and delivery (the birth itself); it refers to the entire process as an infant makes its way from the womb down the birth canal to the outside world.
Childbirth usually begins spontaneously, about 280 days after conception, but it may be started by artificial means if the pregnancy continues past 42 weeks gestation.
One of the first signs of approaching childbirth may be a "bloody show," the appearance of a small amount of blood-tinged mucus released from the cervix as it begins to dilate.

  Childbirth - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Childbirth (also called labo(u)r, birth, partus or parturition) is the culmination of a human pregnancy with the emergence of a newborn infant from its mother's uterus.

Pethidine (with or without promethazine) may be used early in labour, as well as other opioids; if given too close to birth, they may cause respiratory depression in the infant.
A 1983-1989 study by the Texas Department of Health revealed that the infant death rate was 0.57% for doctor-attended births, and 0.19% for births attended by non-nurse midwives.
It was once thought that newborns do not have the capacity to feel pain or fear, and now some parents are choosing alternative birth settings (other than the hospital) in an attempt to create a more comfortable environment not only for the newborn, but the birthing mother and other family members.

 International childbirth educators
Childbirth Educators have the same frustrations in all countries and tackle the same types of topics in their classes.
Initially, if you are living in a country where the concept of taking classes is relatively new, or unheard of, much of your work may be in building relationships with caregivers and promoting the value of classes to the pregnant population.
Language and cultural barriers can sometimes seem to reduce the chances of a childbirth educator finding work if she is living in a country that is not her homeland.

The risk of a woman dying as a result of childbirth in Sierra Leone is 1 in 7, compared to less than 1 in 10,000 in the UK.

 Hypnobirthing   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
In addition, with labor, the more relaxation the mother experiences, the more comfort she will have, and the depth of relaxation necessary can easily be achieved with hypnosis, as physical relaxation is learned and practiced daily in preparation for birth using guided visualizations followed by positive hypnotic suggestions.
Ideally, hypnosis for childbirth instructors will have backgrounds in both hypnotherapy and childbirth education, and be able to address each woman's personal needs.
The attraction to this kind of program is that it allows the hypnotherapist to adapt the program to fit the needs of their own practice, creating their own scripts and tapes from the original program sessions, and fully modify them to the needs of each woman’s needs.

Dick-Read hypothesized that the fear felt by a woman during childbirth caused blood to be filtered away from her uterus, so it could be used by the muscles that would flee the dangerous situation.
He termed this phenomenon "the fear-tension-pain syndrome of childbirth," and he believed that by eliminating the fear, women could return the uterus to its normal function, thereby eliminating the pain.

Normally, the accommodation is granted to applicable women graduate students who have submitted a petition and appropriate documentation of anticipated childbirth (consisting of a brief statement by the student's medical service provider with a best estimate of the delivery date) and who have initiated planning within the department prior to delivery.
A student anticipating childbirth is eligible for Childbirth Accommodation, and may choose a period of one month, one and a half months, or two months maximum.
Approval of Childbirth Accommodation retains the student's access to on-campus medical facilities and does not affect eligibility for outside hospitalization benefits, provided that appropriate tuition and health insurance fees have been paid for the term in which delivery is anticipated.

Childbirth was probably one of the first conditions that brought about the development of professional healers.

If she had enemas as part of childbirth, and almost everyone over 20's mother did, she may also be quite accepting and supportive of the treatment.
