My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.

Birth and the Bible

Professional midwives assisted at confinements (Genesis 35:17 describes Rachel bearing her last son; Exodus 1:15 to the Hebrew midwives in Egypt).

Exodus 1:16 suggests that a woman in labour sat on a birth-chair. On the other hand, children are also described as being born “on the knees of” another person (Genesis 30:3; 50:23; Job 3:12). Many authors have concluded from this that childbirth took place on the knees of a midwife or relative helping the mother.

Two Egyptian hieroglyphic signs meaning “to give birth”  show that the Egyptians had noted the occipital position of the head in a normal birth, and that Egyptian women followed the common practice among early peoples and adopted a squatting rather than recumbent position during labour.

In cases of multiple births, the rights of the first-born were jealously guarded and the birth sequence carefully noted (Genesis 25:25; 38:27).

The new baby was given special care (Ezekiel 16:4), washed, rubbed with salt and wrapped in swaddling clothes (Ezekiel 16:4; Job 38:8-9).

The mother would nurse the baby (Genesis 21:7; 1 Samuel 1:21-23) unless, probably among the wealthier classes, a wet nurse was hired (Genesis. 24:59; 35:8; Numbers 11:12).

Apparently the baby was weaned at the age of three (II Macabees 7:27).

On the day the baby was weaned, a feast was held (Genesis 21:8).

Contraception was frowned on by the ancient Israelites. ‘Frowned on’  is perhaps too mild: in the story of Tamar (Genesis 38), Tamar’s husband Onan practises withdrawal before ejaculation, thus preventing Tamar from conceiving. God kills him as a punishment. ‘he spilled his semen on the ground whenever he went in to his brother’s wife (Tamar was a widow who according to the Levirate Law had to marry her dead husband’s brother) so that he would not give offspring to his brother. What he did was displeasing in the sight of the Lord, and he put him to death.’5
