Some faulty or unnecessary practices during this process may spoil the naturalness of birth and cause ketosen, ketosen associated with prolonged labor, dehydration, assisted delivery and postpartum hemorrhage to develop in the mother and hipogilise, hpyponetremia and some complications in the fetus. To ensure a natural birth and to let it proceed in a healthy process, it is necessary that health services are standardized in line with results from evidence based practices.
