- Child-birth or labour involves physical trauma, but it is expected to happen (for say 9 months)… that complicates things???? (It definitely breeds paranoia and worry-downward-spiral)
- However, the fact that it is expected and the fact that it is linked to species survival has facilitated a lot of research. I tend to think expected and predictable events get a bit over-researched and over-operationalized* in general. Is the fact that it is linked to reproduction causes too much(harmful) research or not?? Interesting question, but may not be answerable…
- The choice of word “labour” is interesting. It has marxist/communist connotations in most contexts, but in this, not really…. coincidence???
- The blanket ban of “no males in labour ward”** might be useful and valid, but it hardly is without exception and definitely allows for more follow-the-process decisions, encouraging a ignorance of context..
- Even after about 30 hours of partial sleep and adrenaline surge*** I could feel that jump in heart beat on looking at my daughter..
- P.S: every note above(except 5th) was written before the adrenaline surge.
* — to the point of over-engineering that risks violating the “do-no-evil”
***–which was another story, i’ll write after my lymbic system settles down(aka down-regulating-lymbic-system for that memory), suffice it to say, i became more convinced of gender-difference (aka sexist)
