Birth Vocab

Here is an article on Pregnancy Terminology, which might be helpful to the lay consumer.

This is just a list of common terms that can be heard while a woman is pregnant or delivering. Hearing words you don't understand can be alarming to a laboring couple, and so in this regard, it's my opinion that a little bit of homeword goes a long way.

Keep in mind, too, that having a doula at your birth can also make things less frightening by explaining new terms as they come. Doulas can also outline what may need to be done about a situation that arises, on how to make the best possible decision for each set of circumstances.
Remember to be an educated consumer, get yourself a doula, and choose wisely for the best possible expereince!
