Spoilers. Watching this stunning masterpiece got me thinking about the the underlying theme. Clearly Ryan is in the Foetal position at one stage, the tube representing an umbilical cord. The thrust to Earth representing the birth canal, and the water being amniotic fluid, she even had to stagger to her feet like an infant. The themes are about life and death are very present throughout the film. I don't usually analyse films like this, however this did stand out. Discuss.

I think it's more to do with rebirth than birth. She says that after her daughter death all see does is drive around and doesn't really have anything to live for anymore. I think the whole journey she goes through in the film is her rebirth.
