There is a beautiful and healthy design to childbirth.
The design works best when we work with it. Birth is a normal, healthy life event. It is a robust and competent physiologic process of the wonderfully designed female body.It is, in fact, a largely INVOLUNTARY process! Tell your uterus to contract…you can’t! Make your cervix dilate…you can’t! Rather, the uterus is competent to do its job of gestating the fetus, dilating the cervix, and expelling the fetus. Birth is not broken so doesn’t need fixing. It is not inherently unsafe so doesn’t need rescuing. All the advances in other areas of medicine improve it, but not in birth. Rather, the less you mess with it, the better!
When you work with the design, you find that it works.
