Time and parting: substances of childbirth humanization

Silvia de Ambrosis Pinheiro Machado

Resumo


Childbirth is a very powerful and intense experience
for the whole family and implies changes in the way
each one sees oneself and the other, as well as each
recalls the experience. For the author, to humanize
childbirth is to know it as part of a history. Here,
we understand history as a process of integration
and articulation of experiences (personal, of the
couple, of the family and cultural) in order to build
an identity of becoming a father and a mother, and
to erect a personal sense of maternity and paternity.
There is no history without time. In this sense, to
humanize childbirth means to include time. To
include it is also to recognize the human limit,
its condition: to be human is to be limited, finite
in time and mortal. It is upon these two pillars,
time and death (parting), that this text seeks to
fundament childbirth humanization
