Why is it important for human service professionals to understand the basics of pregnancy in terms of job responsibility?

If one is to engage in Human Service work, it would seem to me that the fundamental arrival of every person is through pregnancy.  So, since we have all started there and there is so much warfare, misunderstanding, and abuse in the field of human sexuality, it would seem to me this is a foundational study.  In any profession, or any occupation sexual (or gender) biases underlie most of converstions, evaluations, job skills, expectations, etc.

If we could develop a generation that is comfortable with their bodies and tne amazing process that life is, we might be able to develop a society that didn't run of misguided, or misinformed sexual energy.
