Episode 80 Content and Overview

An intervention is any procedure performed by a care provider that impacts your labor or birth.  Interventions include IVs, epidurals, electronic fetal monitoring, assisted delivery (using forceps or a vent house suction cup), episiotomy, induction, augmentation, and cesarean.  Every intervention comes with its own pros and cons.  By learning what each procedure entails and when and why it is performed you will be better able to make an informed decision as to whether or not you need or want it.
