Pregnancy and childbirth are two of the most natural and gratifying events a woman will experience in her life. Yet, many women undergo their pregnancy and give birth in a state of total fear. With the breakthroughs in medicine and most of the technology we’ve at our disposal, it’s possible to wonder why women experience more stress and fear while they are pregnant or giving birth.
Actually, the issue seams to have been created from the fact with the advent of the widespread of information through the net, women have حوامل access to more stressful info than ever before. Our medical society seams to be guilty of focusing more on the potential problems than the fact pregnancy and birth are natural events. Television can be guilty of portraying pregnancy and childbirth as dangerous and often features a negative outcome. All things considered, television thrives on drama and high emotions and people could be bored by the story of a woman who lives a simple and uneventful pregnancy and birth.
This may be the key reason why under developed countries see pregnancy as an easy and normal stage in a woman’s life and that childbirth is less feared as in our more developed countries.
The caesarean rate has reached an unprecedented high and one woman out of three will not get to experience the natural birth of her baby. With this specific caesarean rate so high it’s possible to honestly ask if we are really doing the mother and the infant to be a service. In some hospital they are even offering caesareans on demand but this type of practice should be challenged. Any surgery, including caesareans carry higher risks of infections and bleeding among other complications. We also should remember that although the rate of operative deliveries has skyrocketed within the last two decades, the entire well-being of the newborn has stayed more or less the same.
A pregnant woman should be aware of most of the negative messages she’s exposed to during her pregnancy. By being aware of this, she will likely then be able to select more positive readings, and viewings (movies, those sites, etc) in order to prepare for a pleased birth.
I’m by no means saying that medical technology is bad. We have come a long way and I would not return to the primitive pregnancy and childbirth care that people had. All things considered, when I actually do medical missions in third world country, I get to witness what not enough prenatal care can do.
What I’m saying is that most pregnancy will go well and most childbirth will end-up well so why stress out the long run parents with all the items that can go wrong and not prepare them to experience a peaceful arrival of the baby.
All things considered, it’s the task of the medical professionals to ensure the mother and the infant are doing well and use the available technology whenever needed. The role of the parents is among preparing well but 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.
