Traditional Indian customs surrounding birth. A review

, : Traditional Indian customs surrounding birth. A review. South African Medical Journal 83(3): 200-203

Since 1960, only a few studies have been made of traditional customs surrounding birth in Indian culture. Very few of these have described customs followed by Indians in South Africa. A review of these publications is presented here. Customs described include religious, social and psychological aspects of behaviour in relation to conception, pregnancy, birth and the early months of parenthood.
