The Health Secretariat of Rio de Janeiro, aligned to the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Ministry of Health, invests more in humanized birth. The practice is encouraged among the doctors of the hospitals of the state, such as the Women's Hospital Helonia Studart State Hospital Albert Schweitzer and the Rocha Faria State Hospital. With the exception of cases where there is indication for cesarean section, because of possible risks to mother or infant, physicians should be prepared to encourage normal birth and guide families about its benefits.

According to experts, the benefits of vaginal delivery are many. The rates of complications such as infection and bleeding, are smaller, the pain is almost nonexistent in the postoperative period, the risk of death of mothers and babies is six times smaller, the recovery time is faster motherboard, allowing it to quickly have contact with the child and begin nursing.

In Brazil, people believe, wrongly, that the CS is better. Many mothers think they will feel more pain or at risk if they delivered vaginally and this is not true. Doctor's role is to guide families on the benefits of this natural process, said the coordinator of the obstetrician and maternity Rocha Faria State Hospital (Herf) in Campo Grande, Juciney Pacheco.

The WHO recommends that the rate of cesarean sections from 15% to 30%. The student Rachel Smith, 18, a resident of Sepetiba and had the experience of childbirth is usually recommended. When I got to have my son, do not know if I wanted to have normal birth because he was afraid of pain. The doctors talked to me and helped me and I think it was good to have normal delivery done, because an hour later I was well and could take a shower. Also managed to breastfeed my son soon and spend more time with him, says Rachel.

<b> Center for Fetal Evaluation </ b>

In December, the first Center for Fetal Evaluation (NAF) state public health opened the Rocha Faria State Hospital. It allows, through advanced exams, assess the fetus still inside the womb. The new service has morphological ultrasound fetal, maternal and fetal Doppler, baseline cardiotocography, fetal biophysical profile, biophysical profile of the embryo and amnioscopia.

All tests are targeted mainly for patients in high-risk pregnancy. The mother can see this on a monitor, receiving the necessary explanations during the procedure. All tests are painless and noninvasive.
