C-sections and other medical interventions can save lives in an emergency, but birth is not nearly as dangerous as some media hype makes it out to be. On the contrary, natural birth has proven to be remarkably healthy for most women (see story).

An example of a natural birth is shown in a video of an Australian mother who headed to the woods for her fourth delivery. “My dream had long been to give birth in nature,” the woman says in the video.

“It was the singular most transforming event of my life,” she writes in the video description, “and my most conscious act as a woman to date.”
