Come to think of it, our eldest got very very sick about 3 days after birth - viral and bacterial meningitis, it turned out - so he spent a month in the pediatric ward of Obama City hospital. The staff were very kind (typical of the people living in Obama), and I have nothing but good memories (once the scare was over) of that hospital.
As has been shown many times before, and is supported by countries like the UK, it is just as safe for a woman with a normal pregnancy to birth with a qualified midwife at home as it is to birth in a hospital.
Excretory, cervical, and vaginal sphincters function best in an atmosphere of intimacy and privacy.
In a review of 15 available studies, 12 suggested a significant association between epidural and c-section. Risk of c-section generally found to be 2-3 times more likely with epidural.
An influence on this is what point in labor the epidural was administered. One study found that cesarean rates were 11% if epidural was given at 5 or more cm dilation, 16% at 4 cm, and 28% at 3 cm. Another study was even more striking, finding that cesarean rates increased to 26% when epidural was given at 4 cm, dilation, 33% at 3 cm, and 50% when the epidural was given at 2 cm dilation.
