Indian tradition has always maintained that pregnancy should be by choice, and not by chance. As per the Vedic tradition a child has to be the result of prayers and aspirations and not the product of mere entertainment and conjugal enjoyment. A number of samskaras or purificatory disciplines have been suggested in the tradition to prepare a couple psychologically and physically for this important work of bringing a child into this world.
