Giving Birth and Being Born in Water
In every culture and religion throughout the world water is synonymous with the female aspect of life. Where there is no water, there can be no life.
Water is considered the symbol of fertility and also of eternal life. Human beings consist mainly of water, and before birth we develop inside the womb, swimming in amniotic fluid. We can therefore say that we are “children of water.”
