Labor and delivery
In the last weeks of pregnancy, both mother and baby begin to prepare for birth. The fetus develops and grows in preparation for life outside the womb. As a pregnant woman, she undergoes many physiological, psychological, and social changes that gradually prepare her for childbirth and the role of a mother.
From the beginning of labor, a remarkable change in the relationship between the mother and her child begins, and during childbirth, especially at the end, the woman knows instinctively that she is involved in one of the most important tasks that she will perform in her life, and that precious life is about to appear. The experience of childbirth, with all its endurance and patience, is what prepares the mother and father for the psychological transition to the stage of paternity.
