We sought to verify the performance of prenatal care by indigenous pregnant women and the numbers of vaginal and cesarean deliveries in Rio Grande do Sul in relation to Brazil, from 2010 to 2019. Based on ecological or correlation studies, it was carried out if the searches in the free access database of DATASUS, carried out between December 01 and 15, 2021 in the aforementioned system, being researched on the numbers of vaginais deliveries and cesarean sections among indigenous and non-indigenous pregnant women in Brazil and in the state from Rio Grande do Sul for a time span of ten years - 2010 to 2019. For the analysis, it used the quantitative and qualitative descriptive analysis technique. As main results, it was evidenced that indigenous women perform more normal deliveries, when compared to non-indigenous pregnant women. Cultural factors and distances from health centers may be a factor that corroborates the data found. Another point worth mentioning about the findings refers to: although the number of normal births in indigenous people is greater, we still need to move forward to obtain the recommendation.
