Birth injuries are treated through surgery, innovated hypothermic therapy and lifelong medications or assistive care.

The most common birth injuries are subconjunctival hemorrhages, fractures, facial paralysis, Cephalohematoma, caput succedaneum, forcep marks or bruising and Brachial Palsy.

The greatest risk factor for birth injuries are Medical Conditions.

Other greatest risk factors for birth injuries are delivery position, medical mismanagement of birth injuries, maternal conditions and baby's shape and size.

To be admitted to the hospital for labor and delivery you need to be dilated more than cm.

If you're not dilated more than 4 cm then you will likely not be admitted to the hospital.

The type of delivery that is more painful is natural delivery or natural childbirth that is also known as a vaginal birth.

A natural vaginal birth is the most painful especially without an epidural as the baby is going to come out through your vagina.

A C section delivery of a baby is less painful and a natural vaginal childbirth with an epidural is also less painful.

Babies most likely do feel some pain during their birth although nobody knows for sure.

The babies head is squeezed to go through the birth canal but it's designed to do that and that could be painful.

Labor pain during childbirth compares to bad back pain, broken bones and or extreme menstrual cramps.

Labor and birth without an epidural is faster than labor and birth with an epidural.

However it can depend on how relaxed you are and in some cases the medications can interfere with your contractions and prolong the labor.

Most women who go into labor find the natural birth without the epidural goes much more quickly for them.

The second stage of the 3 stages of labor is likely to be the most painful stage of labor.

The second stage of labor during pregnancy is most often the most painful and toughest part of labor and can last 15 minutes to an hour.

During the transition to the second stage of labor the contractions get and come closer together and can last up to 60 to 90 seconds.

3 signs that labor is approaching are contractions, water breaking and cramping or tightening which is like period pain.

The signs that labor is near are.

The woman's waters breaking (rupture of the membranes)
The woman experiences a backache, or an upset stomach.
The woman experiences cramping or tightening, similar to period pain.
The woman has a feeling of pressure, as the baby's head moves into the pelvis.
The woman has an urge to go to the toilet caused by your baby's head pressing in your bowel.

Your hips do naturally widen some before giving birth to help with the delivery of the baby and to allow the baby to pass through more easily.

To prepare the pelvis for delivery, the hormone Relaxin is released during pregnancy to help relax the pelvic joints and ligaments as well as soften and widen the cervix.

By relaxing the pelvic joints and ligaments, they loosen and expand so baby can pass through birth canal.
