Review of Ancient Indian Literature in Relation to Preconception by Deepti Goyal

Publication Date: 
September, 2017
Abstract: 

Ancient Indian literature has described the process of formation of a human individual in great detail. This is not only a biological process but also a bio-psycho-spiritual process. It has been equated with the process of formation of the universe which evolves from interplay of Purusha (supreme soul or God or the consciousness) and Prakriti (un-manifest primal nature). Purusha at his free will gets mixed up with un-manifest primal nature, giving rise to the knowable empirical universe.

Views on Medical and Natural Birth in University Women and Men by Soliday & Mammenga

Publication Date: 
September, 2015
Abstract: 

In the U.S. and other industrialized nations, the prevailing childbirth approach has been described as medicalized, a view in which safe birth is characterized as requiring specialized intervention. From the perspective that birth attitudes are largely enculturated, we assessed medical and natural birth attitudes among 1,467 nulliparous university women and men, expecting that pre-parents would endorse medical more strongly than natural birth attitudes. We analyzed data in subgroups categorized by sex, race, and future childbearing plans.
