THE TREE AND THE NEST
Are women losing the ability to give birth on their own? This is what the rising rates of caesarean section and obstetrical interventions around the world seem to suggest.
The majority of women view childbirth as a painful and dangerous event that should absolutely take place at a hospital. However, recent scientific data clearly shows that current obstetrical interventions disrupt and hinder the physiological processes involved in childbirth. For a different birthing experience, a growing number of women hope to give birth accompanied by a midwife outside the hospital setting.
When the focus is on respecting the woman and nature, a birth becomes an awe-inspiring, poetic and empowering moment for the whole family. ALL individuals are born. And so by extension, it is a seminal moment for all humanity.
