    Birth. How women are treated matters. "At least you have a healthy baby" is very hurtful to say to a women who had a traumatic birth experience ... That statement tells her her feelings don't matter .. That she doesn't matter

    Ina May's Guide to Childbirth

    Why I chose two out of hospital births ~ "We have been able to attend some three thousand births, including breech [when the baby enters the birth canal buttocks first] and twin births, over the last forty years, and our c-section rate is 1.7 percent. There were only two c-sections in our first four hundred births. If these statistics are possible for us, they are possible for others." Ina May Gaskin, MA, CPM, PhD (midwife at the Farm Midwifery Center)

    Every midwife knows that not until a mother’s womb softens from the pain of labour will a way unfold and the infant find that opening to be born. Oh friend! There is treasure in your heart, it is heavy with child. Listen. All the awakened ones, like trusted midwives are saying, welcome this pain. It opens the dark passage of Grace. ~Rumi

    Midwife Births by State - this is WAY TOO LOW. Doctors are not trained to truly provide adequate care for women during a normal life event. Rise in cesareans has correlated with the rise in maternal mortality! Educate yourselves, ladies.
