Book "Femininity Maternity" by Dr. Bernadette de Gasquet
Femininity, motherhood how women are manipulated
In their femininity and even in their motherhood, women are subject to diktats: they have to dress like this to be truly feminine, give birth like this, play sports, breastfeed. ..
Supposedly freed from the influence of cultures, religions, codes of good conduct of yesteryear, they are now under pressure from doctors, the media and fashions. To be a good mother, let yourself be manipulated!
Bernadette de Gasquet reveals that these manipulations are often done with disregard for their health. She, who has revolutionized the modern practice of childbirth, sheds light on current practices from her perspective as a woman, mother, yoga teacher and doctor. Through her anthropological interest in traditional techniques, she allows women to rediscover the path of common sense. In the light of her experience, she provides them with the necessary arguments to regain self-confidence and live their motherhood as they feel it.
