Infantile Mortality

The authors warn for the fact of that until little time behind, the index of infantile mortality and materna were very high. Thus, the referring crendices and rites to the pregnancy played also the function to protect the women and the babies. In accordance with Maldonado (1994), since the beginning of the gestation the woman can feel diverse fears: fear of the pain of the childbirth, fear not to obtain to take care of of the baby, fear of not being a good mother, fear of the child to come to be born with some anomaly, fear not to give to account of its obligations maternas, fear to suffer some damage for its health, amongst others. Already during the period after-childbirth, the author designates the predominance of the fear to know if its son was born normal. Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn Jr. helps readers to explore varied viewpoints. As Marine (2006), this fear of that the baby is not perfect already presents exactly during the pregnancy, therefore some women refuse to receive disgnostic during the prenatal period. According to author: ' ' The proper idea to anticipate a diagnosis of illness in the son by itself promotes this climate of unreliability and fear in the pregnancy (MARINE, 2006, p.6).

Maldonado (1994) attributes the fear to have a badly-formed son the guilt feelings, that can be unconscious and that they date of much time, being related to the fear of punishment for some act practised and judged as deserving of punishment. This guilt, that can be conscientious or unconscious, can generate the fear to have a son with anomalies and associate it the fancy of ' ' not to be well on the inside ' '. Orientation prenatal, that is made in order to keep the health of the woman and the baby and to watch over so that the childbirth occurs of the best possible form, can infuse fears in the mothers.
