There is nothing degradation about childbirth, provided if they're healthy, well-informed, and a good parent. There are many examples of birth defectives, diseases through by genetic heritage, and bad breeding through by poor management.
This is the reason why couples should be aware of the health consequences of childbirth caused by viruses like Zika, AIDs, STDs, smoking, environment pollutions, vegetables-only diet, malnutrition, and race mixing.
I mean that it's only a natural part of human nature and reproduction.
Not some socially unacceptable thing. The only thing that would be expected to change after child birth is that the sex will have to wait because the baby will need care and time and feeding etc. etc.
