Birth is Natural, Trust This…
WHAT IS NATURAL CHILDBIRTH?
FACTS YOU SHOULD KNOW
Natural childbirth is:
especially if a mother is helped to GIVE birth to her baby
consciously without too much discomfort, instead of ‘being
delivered’ while unconscious.
~Grantly Dick-Read Childbirth Without Fear
The purpose of childbirth education is:
- To INFORM women about all aspects of pregnancy and labor, in order to take the fear out of childbirth.
- TRAIN women in nature’s process of birth, breastfeeding, and good nutrition.
- Teach RELAXATION techniques, to reduce discomfort during childbirth.
- Help women with techniques to make childbirth EASIER.
- The result should be more SATISFACTION.
Women have helped and supported other women in childbirth since the dawn of time. In our modern times, this practice has diminished. Today we have been subjected to the medical/scientific process that is not focused on the natural way. It is geared more towards heroic measures, mostly based on erroneous ideas or for the time-structure of the doctor, rather than the timing of nature in a natural childbirth.
