In brief: "Imperfect process"

Childbirth has many variables that can cause serious difficulties that can, if untreated, cause death.
Hemorrhage, infections and birth "accidents" all contribute in spite of the technology of OB hospital care. Still in the usa women often deliver in non-hospital environments that do not provide the "necessary backup" needed in case of emergency.Living through childbirth(perfect) is not a "given".
