Talking about “natural birth” – it does not necessarily means that you have to deliver at home.
It is possible to have a natural birth (i.e. no C-section) in Shanghai’s hospitals. I delivered “naturally” at International Peace & Maternity and although the delivery was not easy (and I’m sure in Europe they would have cut me open) they didn’t even suggest C-section at any time.
It helped that I had a birth plan (but they only sticked to the big points of the birth plan). They also seemed to be keen on reducing the rate of C-sections at IPM.
Don’t want to be dismissed again as giving “uninformed opinions” but just be prepared for anything – it might go well & fast (a friend of mine delivered in a car), it might require some serious medical backup operations…
