Re: Kira giving birth

The authors of the "Bradley Method" series of books advocate a theory that a "perfect" human birth will in some ways be like a reverse orgasm for a woman, with the muscles of the vaginal wall constricting and pushing the baby out rather than constricting the penis and facilitating the ejaculation of sperm.

The theory is sound, and requires a good and peaceful state of mind to achieve but there are a few women who have given birth using this method that report a feeling of euphoria and almost no pain, just muscle exertion. My wife was unable to experience this feeling when giving birth but our son had an exceptionally large head and shoulders.

Re: Kira giving birth

I thought it was dumb how complicated they made the birth process for Bajorans. "Oh, you weren't shaking the maracas and tapping the bell just right for the past eight hours, maybe tomorrow."

Are we supposed to believe this silly ritual has to be done for every birth? How did they continue to have children during the Occupation, for instance? If it's that complicated for them to have kids, then maybe that's a hint from the universe that it's time for the Bajorans to go extinct.
