"Complications" viewed holistically

Adapted from Birthing Normally, Gayle Petersen

A holistic practitioner recognizes that all possible factors are synthesized in the actual outcome of a birth. We can never know all the factors creating a complication, nor can we always assume that a complication is bad. Labor and birth is the process through which a woman becomes a mother. We are not wise enough to claim to always know the “right” or the “best” way a woman should give birth. We work toward what we perceive as harmony with nature in every way possible. We accept that all women are doing the best for themselves that they can possibly do at any given moment in time. All parts of the system cooperatively work together to create the best possible synthesis at any moment in time.
