Abstract

The regional retrospective review showed significant social characteristic differences between women who used natural childbirth at delivery and nonusers of this method. Overall, natural childbirth users were more likely to be a higher social class, a higher income, white, older and more educated with husband also having more education and higher occupation than nonadopters of this innovation. The county-wide scope of this natural childbirth study appears to be the first regional research on natural childbirth.
