A Healthy World Starts with A Healthy Mother”-Very True Indeed!!!
Pregnancy and birth are as ordinary and extraordinary as breathing, thinking or loving. And both call on an individual’s creativity, flexibility, endurance and humor.
Women’s knowledge-impact birthing experiences—
Women rely on many resources when planning a birth and the changes made to a woman’s initial birth plan affect her recollection of the birth experience. Their positive and negative recollections of their birth experiences are related more to feelings and exertion of choice and control than to specific details of the birth experience itself.
The birth of a child is a pivotal time in the life of a mother and her family. The health and well-being of a mother and child at birth largely determines the future health and wellness of the entire family. The outcome of childbirth, however, is not the only factor of importance in a mother’s well-being. Some research suggests that the way in which a woman experiences pregnancy and childbirth is also vitally important for a mother’s relationship with her child and her future childbearing experiences.
In preparing to give birth, women develop a birth plan. Birth plans generally include information such as where a woman wishes to give birth, who will attend a birth, and what forms of medical intervention and pain relief will be used. There may also be negative outcomes of developing a birth plan; for example, feelings of failure if the birth plan is not followed and disappointment with the birth experience if expectations are not met.
The birth plan is a tool that outlines a woman’s expectations for her birth and can open communication between a woman and her care providers, providing the woman with knowledge prior to giving birth.
Therefore, proper knowledge about pregnancy and childbirth is very critical…
Learning as much as one can about the developing pregnancy and various childbirth practices will help tremendously. Most pregnant women are bombarded with advice from well-meaning friends and relatives — and even strangers. Everyone seems to have an opinion on what women should or shouldn’t do, and it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by conflicting recommendations.
Drawing on the most accurate research, the experiences of numerous women, and the advice of midwives, physicians and other health care providers, will help mothers gather the information needed to make wise decisions and to approach birth with confidence.
