Pregnancy and childbirth are two of the most natural and gratifying events a female will experience in her life. Yet, many women undergo their pregnancy and give birth in a situation of total fear. With the breakthroughs in medicine and most of the technology we have at our disposal, you can wonder why women experience more stress and fear while they are pregnant or giving birth.
In fact, the issue seams to have been created from the fact that with the advent of the widespread of information through the internet, women have حوامل usage of more stressful info than ever before. Our medical society seams to be guilty of focusing more on the potential problems than the fact that pregnancy and birth are natural events. Television can be guilty of portraying pregnancy and childbirth as dangerous and often features a negative outcome. After all, television thrives on drama and high emotions and people could be bored by the story of a female who lives a simple and uneventful pregnancy and birth.
This can be the reason why under developed countries see pregnancy as a straightforward and normal stage in a woman’s life and that childbirth is less feared as within our more developed countries.
The caesarean rate has reached an unprecedented high and one woman out of three will not get to see the natural birth of her baby. With this caesarean rate so high you can honestly ask if we are really doing the mother and the infant to be always a service. In some hospital they are even offering caesareans on demand but such a practice should be challenged. Any surgery, including caesareans carry higher risks of infections and bleeding among other complications. We also should keep in mind that even though the rate of operative deliveries has skyrocketed in the last 2 decades, the entire well-being of the newborn has stayed virtually the same.
A pregnant woman should be familiar with most of the negative messages she is confronted with during her pregnancy. By being aware of the, she will manage to select more positive readings, and viewings (movies, internet sites, etc) to be able to prepare for a happy birth.
I am certainly not saying that medical technology is bad. We have come a considerable ways and I could not return to the primitive pregnancy and childbirth care that we had. After all, when I really do medical missions in third world country, I reach witness what not enough prenatal care can do.
What I am saying is that many pregnancy should go well and most childbirth will end-up well so why stress out the long run parents with the things that can go wrong and not prepare them to see a peaceful arrival of the baby.
After all, it’s the job of the medical professionals to make sure that the mother and the infant are succeeding and use the available technology whenever needed. The role of the parents is one of preparing well in a confident way.
Many self-hypnosis programs for expecting parents have understood the necessity of a confident and calm preparation for birth and have successfully helped them.
