Birth, inducing from Warriors' Experience


  • Birth, inducing

Question:

What is the Toltec stance on inducing birth when a baby is long overdue?

Answer:

Realise that the mother's body can only handle so much, and when a baby is running overtime to any great extent it starts taking too much energy from the mother. Therefore there is nothing to do other than to help the process by inducing the birth. This then should be seen as forming part of the challenge, not only of the child, but also of the parents.
