Why Should You Choose Treasured Birth?

Worldwide, there are few societies that exist in which women give birth alone and unaided.
The social nature and significance of birth ensures that this biological, and intensely personal
process carries a heavy cultural overlay. This fact supports the evidence that attending
Childbirth Classes is important in Expecting Couples preparation for Birth.

According to Van Gennep in 1908:

“Birth is a rite of passage that embodies a culture’s deepest beliefs, which are
transmitted and reaffirmed during this critical, transitional time."

According to Sheila Kitzinger, 1978:

“Birth practices point to the core values of the culture, and tell the observer a great
deal about the way a culture views the world, and women’s place in it.”

In cultures where women have high status there is a rich set of nurturing traditions
that develop around birth. In cultures where women’s status is low, the
opposite occurs.

In the United States, within the hospital environment laboring women are regularly presented
with many and varied technological interventions. Media presents
this birth approach as being the "best in care" and the general population
accepts this method as "prestigious."

In truth, the use of technology can NOT guarantee a positive birth outcome.

Evidence-based research studies show that the more technology that is used in pregnancy
and childbirth, the greater is the possibility for poor maternal and
fetal birth outcomes. This extensive use of technology takes away the
natural empowerment of birthing families.
