Section 1. About Birth

Birth is a human being's first appearance in the world and it is the most important time. There is not a more important event in human life than this as the family and society greet the person to whom they entrust future affairs.
However, in the past, when there were no appropriately established courtesies for birth, everyone celebrated the event according to their own individual understanding and views. with some cases falling into superstition or doing the courtesies without proper aim. The mother and newborn baby had difficulties due to the lack of sanitation. Birth practices must be performed with emphasis placed on appropriate prenatal care, sanitation for the mother, and the future wisdom and blessing of the newborn child.
