I've read in other posts that with C-A and Alexia she had natural deliveries, without epidurals or things like that! I don't know how she did it. Pretty amazing.

How nice to see! But girl or boy I'm sure the parents don't care just as long as it's a healthy happy little one.

The two previous deliveries went via natural way and without sedation. It is very unusual to use sedation in the Netherlands.
There is a belief, or tradition or 'wisdom' that women 'should' endure the pain to create a deep bond with the baby.

Deliveries with a smile on your face thanks to sedation (USA) is very uncommon in here. Doctors will advize against it.

Brave Dutch women! Máxima is a real Dutch!

She is now in her 7th hour in the hospital + however long at home. I'm surprised it is taking this long, it wasn't as long with Alexia

Well the idea of giving birth in my opinion is a little scary but hey some people can really tolerate pain very well. I actually had the mother of a friend of mine that told me the pain of child birth was highly overrated. She didn't think it was that bad just tiring. Everyone is different.

Yes it is different for every person. I personally think I would require some pain relief. Yet a friend of mine had a 10 pound baby and was in labour for 12 hours and didnt use pain relief except gas and air in the last half hour!

I think it's great that the Netherlands doesn't use sedation. But like you say sedation in the US is very common. However I have heard(not sure it's true) but I once heard that in "religious" based hospitals here in America those hospitals aren't as into sedation. Not sure that's true though. But a friend of mine was very disappointed one time while giving birth because they wouldn't use any sedation.

If we look to Princess Beatrix: three births to three wonderful sons and all three via caesarean (and sedation of course) while she has quite broad hips. Unrespectfully said: exceptionally well equipped for giving births.
(Beatrix is a popular name for prize cattle and well proportioned cows, believe me and ask other Dutchmen)



I remember the amazement back in 2003 when it became known Princess Máxima gave birth via natural way.
People thought the royal infant 'should' be born by caesarean.

Ahhhhh drat!! I must be leaving to teach a piano lesson. Fortunatly, it's nearby so I won't be gone too long. But, I'll be very sad if I miss the news! Ah well, the most important thing is that CP Maxima and the baby are alright.

Thanks to everyone who has posted pictures and information. I will see you all soon!

True, but I would have thought that some news would have leaked out. I hope so the excitment is killing me!

She is not the first woman in history to deliver a baby without epidurals and so on

I have to go to class, and I won't be home for another four hours! I'm guessing I'll be missing the birth. It's too bad. I waited around for both Amalia and Alexia.
