The Rationale for Gentle, Comfortable Birthing

“According to  physiological law, all natural, normal functions of the body are achieved without peril or pain.  Birth is a natural, normal physiological function for normal, healthy women and their healthy babies.

 

It can, therefore, be inferred that healthy women, carrying healthy babies, can safely birth without peril or pain.”

HypnoBirthing Premise

A normal physiological process does not need assistance.  It needs only the patience of birth attendants to resist the temptation to disturb its rhythm and flow in the absence of special circumstances.

Doctor Granntly Dick Read's Theory

“My theories are drawn from observation at the bedside of laboring mothers, not in a laboratory.”

Pioneers pass on unheard and unlamented until the trail they blazed is followed by a few who have believed.
