Resumo

Childbirth was always known as a feminine subject, but from the XVII century on men entered this universe, structuring Obstetrics as a science from the male perspective. This paper addresses the historical construction of this science and brings up a few reflections for the reorientation of this practice, identifying the challenges that are present in seeking a humanized and scientifically-based care, in balance with the feminine and planetary nature.
