Pregnancy and birth are two of the most beautiful and miraculous events any woman will experience. Our bodies are designed to develop and then usher the baby into the world through the birth process. However, anyone that has seen a birth can attest to how traumatic it can be for both Mom and baby.
Tauma to the infant occurs as the baby is displaced from the fetal position, and then extended and forced through the birth canal. This alone is traumatic, but often some form of invasive intervention such as induction, C-section, vacuum extraction or forceps is required, adding more trauma to the event.
