Mexican women embrace natural childbirth

Country with the highest rate of Caesarean births in Latin America coming round to idea of natural birthing.

    Mexico has the highest rate of Caesarean births in the entire Latin America.

    Women say they are encouraged to choose C-section births despite the risks.

    Some women, however, are defying the trend, and chosing a more natural form of childbirth. More recently natural birthing boot camps are becoming more popular.
