THE BABY IS A MAMMAL
This new edition of «The Baby is a Mammal» represents an opportunity to analyze the recent history of birth. In other words, an opportunity to look back. And we must do so because we are looking at the future. This edition comes out now that we can not take another step forwards without assimilating the tremendous amount of scientific data that has been gathered over the past twenty years. In first place, we must ask ourselves, at a certain cultural level, how can we reach a new awareness?; this is why I believe it is urgent to anticipate the story of birth, and that way enter the kingdom of fiction.
We are currently in the Land of Utopia. Today, in January of 2031, we are in the disposition of giving out various figures related to a transition process that started around 2024. It is impressive data. The perinatal mortality rates are at the same low levels in all countries with similar living standards. There has been an astonishing decrease in the rate of transfers to pediatric units. For four years there has not been a single case of a birth using forceps. Since long vaginal and complicated births have been avoided, the use of suckers and medication is very rare. And most importantly: the rate of cesareans is three times lower than before the transition period. The breastfeeding rate up to six months is over 90%, and an infant psychiatrist has confirmed that autism is less frequent than before. Now, the Wise Man of the Land of Utopia can assure that in the Land of Utopia, the majority of women give birth to their babies and lighten up their wombs thanks to the releasing of a “ cocktail made of love hormones”.
Only the Utopia can save Humanity.
