Verbal Magic and Other Forms of Magic
The first and foremost objective of a midwife is to help the birthing mother. Verbal magic and other forms of magic. On the umbilical cord, the umbilical cord knot and the placenta. Signs of good fortune: the magic of the amnion and functions of the amniotic sac (within the “male – female” opposition). The second objective of a midwife is to protect the birthing mother and the newborn. On visit-making rites (navedy) and gifts for the mother. On passage oblivion. Name as a social sign.
