PROCESS OF BIRTH
Birth is an incredible moment in a life, an amazing adaptation of Nature.
Birth is mostly seen as a way to literally evacuate the baby, but it is far more than that.
It is a complex process combining multiple functions. Thus, all aim towards one goal : preparing the baby (as a nervous system) to face the outside World :
- Modelling the skull which will activate the center of growth of its bones, stimulate the brain and the membranes of the brain.
- Creating the reference of your experience and perception of pain (from a neurological point of view). It will fully activate all the sensory receptors of your skin and will determine your perception of touch. So, it will determine the perception that your brain has of the connection of pain to the skin and the related organs. For example, this explains why many people, when having a heart attack, will feel pain on their arm.
- Emptying the lungs from the accumulated water.
- Creating one of the curves of the spine. When the baby’s head goes under the pubic bone, the head will be rejected backward, which will activate the muscles of the neck.
