The Still Unravished Bride: Therefore, perfection is more closely related to death than it is to life, and the pursuit of perfection can be seen as the unconscious pursuit of death. This book was very well-timed for me. One passage in particular resonated with me, as it echoes an impression I got about modern birth practices as I compared the hospital birth of my first child with the home birth of my second.

Book Review: Addiction to Perfection: The Still Unravished Bride | Imperfect Happiness

The birthing addiciton explained that she wanted to have a home birth because she wanted to have the full birth experience.

He evidently sniffed some hysterical-masochistic heresy.

She is translated from feeling subject to anaesthetic object. The physiological process is taken over by a chemico-surgical programme.

This domination and obliteration of the feminine by the masculine in modern obstetrics could go some ways to explaining why women who receive pain medication during labor report lower satisfaction with their birth experiences than women who receive no pain medication. That certainly was my experience.
