There has always been uncertainty between women and service providers about what a "normal" birth means. Words like normal and natural are often interchanged and some various situations and experiences could be considered a "normal" birth.
In a broad sense, normal birth includes births that begin spontaneously, usually between the 37th and 42nd weeks. Normal delivery also includes holding skin to skin after delivery and breastfeeding for the first hour after delivery.

Unless there is a valid medical reason to interfere with labor, all women with high-risk pregnancies are encouraged to continue to deliver normally. A selectable cesarean section is not recommended.
In a normal birth, the baby is born on time through the female private part. A health care professional will care for both the baby and the mother, and medical intervention may be needed to assist or assist with childbirth.
Examples of interventions include rupturing of the membrane, administration of drug-assisted (eg, oxytocin), and the use of drugs or epidurals for pain relief. Fewer interventions in labor are always better, but not always possible.
Some women need childbirth interventions to deliver their babies. For women who wish to receive intervention without childbirth (natural delivery), good preparation, a positive attitude, good childbirth support, and a carer who supports goals are key.
Many women want minimal surgery but may need help with pain relief or other drugs to increase contractions if labor is prolonged.
