So says renowned anesthesiologist Dr. Panchali Dhar, whos penned a book called Before The Scalpel: What Everyone Should Know About Anesthesia (Tell Me Press), hitting shelves tomorrow (Jan. 21).
Recently, Beyonce made a comment about how shes terrified of delivering a baby because she saw her nephew being born.
Dhar says Beyonce shouldnt fear childbirth because the magic of anesthesia makes the experience practically painless.
According to the doc, 98 percent of women use anesthesia during childbirth, and the process is anything but unnatural.
Dhar argues, Theres nothing artificial about having a baby under anesthesia. Were not living in ancient, medieval times where women have to prove their strength through natural childbirth. In this century, Anesthesia is the route to take.
Dhar says anesthesia is so beloved that women who swear by natural birth often change their minds minutes before its time to push.
