Doctors have always preferred the normal way, firstly because it is natural way of birth, secondly, has no health effects and thirdly as it needs no after birth medication which is harmful for the mothers health. Most of the time the reason for Cesarean delivery is improper health. To avoid cesarean delivery, a woman needs both muscle and cardiovascular strength. Both of which is possible only through exercise.


Exercise For Normal Delivery –


1. Walking – Walking all throughout the period of pregnancy is the best exercise for normal delivery. It not only makes the muscles flexible, prevents other illnesses like blood pressure, constipation and restlessness. Some of these illnesses also hinder the delivery.


2. Kegels – Kegels is the best exercise for normal delivery. This exercise is to contract the muscles of the vaginal area and ten letting it loose after few seconds. Do 10 kegels. This will strengthen the muscles around your vagina, uterus, bladder and rectum. Kegels can make labor smooth and also help in recovering soon.


3. Cardiovascular Exercise – With low cardiovascular health, the mother may not be able to handle the delivery pressure thus, opting for cesarean birth. Cardiovascular exercises for normal delivery include swimming, aqua exercises etc.


These three exercises should be done under moderate speed and with complete care. Over exertion might hamper the baby. Under doctors advice perform these three exercises for normal delivery for better health of both mother and child.

Kegels
To perform a Kegel exercise, practice stopping your flow of urination in mid-stream. The muscles that you use to do this are the muscles that you need to contract during Kegel exercises. When performing the exercises, contract these muscles that are located in the area of your vagina and rectum. Hold the contraction for about five seconds and release. Repeat for a set of eight to 10 contractions. Follow this set with a rapid set of quick contract-and-release exercises in the same area. Perform 20 quick Kegels for this set. Work up to multiple sets of each kind of Kegel exercise. By doing this, you will strengthen the muscles in and around your vagina, uterus, bladder and rectum. This can make labor go more smoothly, reduce your chance of having hemorrhoids and speed up your recovery time after delivery.


Cardiovascular Exercises
Labor is a physically demanding event. Regularly practicing cardiovascular exercises before it's time to deliver builds stamina and helps your body to prepare for the delivery process. Cardiovascular exercises, sometimes called aerobic exercises, increase heartbeat and respiration. Choose low-impact exercises during pregnancy to reduce the risk of injury. Some of these recommended activities include walking, swimming and stationary biking. Consult your doctor to make sure an exercise program is safe for you and your baby before you begin.


Yoga
Yoga increases flexibility and aids in relaxation. Various yoga positions and stretches can help pregnant women specifically by working parts of the body that will be taxed during labor and delivery. Some of these positions include squats and pelvic tilts. You can perform a stretch called the "cobbler pose" that will help to open up and loosen your pelvic area. Sit with your back against a wall and your legs flat on the floor. Bring your feet in toward each other until they are touching. Your knees should be bent. Hold this position and use your hands to gently push your knees toward the floor. Don't force them; just use light movements and stop if you feel pain or discomfort. If possible, stay in this pose for five to 10 minutes each day.
