Importance of obstetric psychoprophylaxis in pregnancy between 18-25 years - Importancia de psicoprofilaxis obstétrica en embarazos entre 18-25 años
Gestation is considered biologically, psychologically and socially a normal process, the health conditions of the mother, the family environment and the social context in which it is carried out contribute to its evolution, and the mother and the fetus should be monitored through health programs. For many years ago, the pregnant woman received care only at the time of delivery, omitting the other stages that includes labor, where the woman also requires attention. In 1929 hypnosugestive measures were used for "the pains of childbirth" and in 1951 the psycho-prophylactic method perfectly arranged and demonstrated on a scientific basis was released, thus improving the attitude of the pregnant woman in labor. The education provided for childbirth will allow the pregnant woman to cope with the stress caused, thus reducing pain.
