Your OBGYN will be able to deliver your baby

With a vaginal birth, you’ll have the option to have an epidural to help control the pain. This type of birth involves you pushing to deliver the baby vaginally. Many times, women who deliver this way can leave the hospital with their new baby within a day or two.
C-sections are a little different. This involves a numbing agent numbing the lower part of the mother’s body. Your women’s OBGYN will then make an incision through which they’ll remove the baby. Then, the incision will be closed, and you’ll be taken to a recovery room. This option is usually done if you’ve previously had one, have a baby that is breach, or the baby goes into distress during birth.
