Who invented rebirthing?
This is a question I get asked quite often from my patients who have just gone through the birthing process. While this is one of those trendy medical procedures that everyone’s heard about, the answer isn’t necessarily as simple as you’d think. Of course, I can tell you who invented the technique… but then again, I can also tell you who invented rebirthing itself! In this article, I’ll cover the latter.
Rebirthing occurs when a pregnant woman is put into labor. She is in fact not in labor, but in what some might call “the deep end”. The muscles contract and cause the walls of the amniotic sac to stretch to the point where a c-section can be cut and the child could come out. Because this marks the first stages of labor, the term “reborthing” was born.
At this point, the placenta has already been pushed out and has begun to push the amniotic fluid toward the baby. What happens then is that the mother feels an incredible sense of energy as her uterus contracts and pushes the fluid toward the baby. It is at this point, once the baby reaches the cervix, that the birthing experience changes dramatically. For some women this is when the true labor begins.
During this time, the baby inside the womb begins moving towards the birth canal where it’s headed for his or her mother’s stomach. As this happens, the baby’s heart has to work even harder and the amount of blood circulating to that area of the body rises. It has to do this despite the fact that there is generally some degree of pain – perhaps due to the fact that the placenta is still not fully developed and is being pushed out by the extra pressure.
Some women find rebirthing therapy to be very painful, and in some cases it can be downright horrific. This is why some physicians do not recommend it for new births. But if a woman has gone through the pain and discomfort of labor before, then you likely have the information necessary to decide if it is right for you. After all, just because something hurts a bit at the beginning doesn’t mean you will have to endure it forever. After all, your baby is growing and the more he or she grows, the less pain you will feel.
In actuality, many mothers have reported that they never felt any pain during their first birthing session. This was in spite of the fact that the physician – whether a traditional physician or not – did what he or she felt was necessary in order to help the birthing process along. It is only after the first birth that the mother learns that she might need some sort of birthing assistance. There are actually some parents who do not believe that rebirthing at all harms the baby or the mother. As long as the child is kept safe and warm and provided with plenty of nutrients, most doctors do not feel that there is anything wrong.
Who Invented Rebirthing Therapy? – Before anyone can answer that question, it is first necessary to know exactly what rebirthing therapy actually is. From its name, it is a method of helping a woman give birth naturally and painlessly. The birthing process itself is a natural part of the process of giving birth – the woman is not in any danger of being sedated during labor, for example, nor is she at any risk of developing an infection due to improper care of the baby. However, rebirthing therapists can assist a woman in the last few contractions before birth, as well as after birth.
Women can find rebirthing programs online that will provide information on the technique as well as tips on how to use it properly. The whole idea is to make sure that when the baby finally comes into the world, he or she is as safe and comfortable as possible. After all, this is the time when the new family begins and there are a lot of things that have to be taken care of. This is also a very emotional time, so it should not be considered a risk.
