And it becomes curious, but how does it happen in other countries. For example, in America? It is possible that some future mothers prefer to give birth abroad.

How does pregnancy and childbirth take place among American women?

First, it should be noted that the examination of pregnant women is not carried out in the States on a high and uncomfortable chair, but on a couch with special footstools. Upon examination, the doctor comments on his actions and tells in detail about what and how the pregnant woman is going through. As well as at us, the future mums weigh, measure pressure, volume of a stomach, take necessary analyzes and listen to palpitation of a fruit. For the entire pregnancy, a woman undergoes ultrasound three times, the last - just before childbirth. At week 17, a blood test is performed on the genetic defects of the fetus. In the United States, there is a very nice and touching custom - a woman who is about to have a baby, arranges a small baby shower party, which means "a shower for a child." What is the point of such a party? All relatives and friends are invited to give gifts to the future mother, pleasant words and kind wishes. This helps to tune in to a positive outcome of labor and raise the mood, feeling the love and care of loved ones. Preparing to become a mother makes up a list of gifts that she needs, and, thus, picks up her child a dowry. Invited guests put a gift certificate in the box with a gift, which will help in case of need to exchange a thing for another or return money. And contests and comic competitions make the evening cheerful and festive. At this time, the culprit of the celebration can discuss the harassing problems with young and more experienced mothers.

Partner births in the US - a very common phenomenon. If a woman gives birth alone, then doctors may suspect that something is wrong in her personal life. The delivery does not necessarily include a husband. It can be any other relative, and even friends, but by tradition, it is the husband who must cut the baby's umbilical cord.

The postpartum ward has good conditions. It is single, with a special crib, TV and comfortable furniture. The births take place in any position in which it is convenient for the most pregnant - standing, lying, squatting, on the side, on the back. At the same time, the fetus is monitored. In some maternity wards even stand a jacuzzi, helping the woman in childbirth completely relax. After giving birth, a woman and a child are transferred to the ward, where she is under the constant supervision of nurses and doctors. Write out usually in a couple of days, if everything is in order. Great attention is paid to the security system. Children can not be taken out of the office without the knowledge of the administration. For an extract from the maternity hospital it is necessary to provide a car seat! Without him, the child will not be discharged, even if the parents do not have a car. On the extract, parents are given many gifts - diapers, clothes, baby food. And finally, it is important to note that any child born in the United States automatically becomes a citizen of this country.
