Types of Birth Method…

Silent birth

Silent Birth refers to a method preferred by some members of the Church of Scientology. A silent birth involves delivering a baby in a completely silent, calm environment, without the help of pain relieving drugs. During a silent birth, all sounds are kept at an absolute minimum — speaking, whispering, and even playing music is discouraged, and anesthetic drugs are avoided. This silence is maintained for a period of seven days.

Hydro birth

Water birth entails a method of delivery where a mother gives birth to her child in a bathtub or pool full of warm water. Water is a muscle relaxant. It aids the passage of the baby through the birth canal. It provides greater comfort and mobility. The mother has more ease and freedom to move spontaneously, and to change position to assist the descent of the baby. Water helps relieve pain, so, other painkillers can be avoided. A hydrobirth shortens the duration of labour and reduces the incidence of artificial instrumentation at delivery. It helps in the reduction of pressure on the abdomen. Buoyancy promotes more efficient uterine contractions and better blood circulation. This means less pain for the mother, and more oxygen for the baby.

Hypno birth

Hypno birth is based on the belief that birth is a natural phenomenon and not a medical incident. Hypno birthing therapists teach women how to self-hypnotise and use very slow breathing techniques that coincide with the body’s natural contractions.

The key element of this type of delivery involves teaching pregnant mothers a whole new childbirth vocabulary as follows,

Babies are not “delivered,” they are “birthed” through the “birthing process,” not “labour.”

Mothers do not “push” their babies out. They “breathe down” their babies.
