Tibetan pre pregnancy practices

Irish are primarily catholic, but their christening ritual is practiced in the modern catholic style.
Hello, I belong to Pakistan and am a Muslim, and I can assure you there is no such practice in either Pakistan or Islam.
Ancient and traditional cultures seem to have pregnancy and childbirth practices that are more humane and enlightened than those followed in modern society.
Parents are consciously aware that their thoughts, attitudes and behaviors influence their child’s development and health from the idea of conceiving a baby through its pre- and postnatal development.
Tibetan Medical Paintings, an 11th century illustrated text, deal with each week of life in the womb.
Aboriginal women provide a temporary haven for a being with its own pre-existing spiritual identity.
To learn more about the research and cross-cultural parallels that are part of 45+ years of collecting pre-birth memories and experiences, please read Cosmic Cradle: Spiritual Dimensions of Life before Birth. From the pre pregnancy period to the birth of the new child all rituals vary from culture to culture.


Mainly in Hinduism and Islam it is a part of the routine new born ceremonies.  In Islam it is practiced as a ritual called Aqeeqah. Few days before the birth of the new child, the pregnant mother is taken to a building called Bashleni.
But you are so very wrong about Islam or muslims having a tradition of confining pregnant women to enclosed buildings and sending naked menstruating women to serve them. Three cultures, Tibetan, Balinese, and Aboriginal Australian, embrace the idea that fetuses are capable of interacting with and being deeply imprinted by their social environments.
She concluded that Yequana birthing and childrearing practices were responsible for their humor and equanimity: the child is made to feel that it is a valued part of its social and natural environment from conception.
The entire point mentioned above is incorrect, including that of women being naked or unclean when they are near the pregnant woman. When the lady start undergoing with the labor pain, she was shifted to the prepared bed and then her husband used to lean by her side. The newly born is either named by a living Buddha, the parents or the senior most prestigious person of the community.  Even in Jewish tradition the baby girl is named on the first Sabbath from the day she is born, and Male child is named after the 8th day of the birth.


It signifies how a mother and a child are related to each other from the past, present and future.
In Indonesia a 90 minute massage is must to a child and mother at least for a month to practice of bathing the new born and mother with cow urine and milk in India, there are various other traditional rituals followed around the world.
As per Islam rules only unclean women who include those who are undergoing their menses are allowed to enter that building to help the pregnant lady. The reason behind this is to save the person from any mockery or hardship due to the presence of an unusual name.
Even the well developed and technologically advanced medical science uses the practice followed in Navajo community.
They treat it as a dead twin of the living child and practice respectfully all death rites.
