Planned Birthdates

When we were in Mexico we were surprised to find out how many middle class families get c-sections and used formula instead of breastfeeding. Evidently, natural births and breastfeeding is associated with being poor so the people who can afford it avoid these options. In India astrology has a very big impact on how people live their lives. Arranged marriages consider the date, hour and even minute of the couple’s birth. Parents are request c-sections scheduled for the exact day that their astrologer deems “best”. In some cases they even request a specific 15 minute window for their child’s birth.
