Anna Maria Engelsing: Programmed Birth
Homeopathy for birth as a counterweight to high-tech medicine.
Medical guidelines for pregnancy care, intensive prenatal diagnostics, over-monitored and often programmed birth, and the resultant desires expressed by mothers who feel the urge to rapidly resume “normal” functioning with their babies soon after birth, all these are the key issues in current perinatal care, which bears hardly any resemblance to the sacred rites of pregnancy, birth, and lying-in from the past. The “we can do it” attitude replaces “live and let live,” control substitutes for trust, and high-tech trumps dedication or devotion. Fear drives behavior.
