Birthing is the most profound initiation to spirituality a woman can have.

I get happy very easily and very often.
My sister had health insurance; she should have been warned by her doctors that she was at risk. But she was a minority. The doctors took little interest in her as an individual, and she fell through the cracks. And died.
Pregnant women who are at risk for suffering complications and even death are in the prime of their lives. The most affected populations are minorities, Native Americans, immigrants, and women living in poverty and who speak little or no English.
The number of maternal deaths is significantly understated because of a lack of effective data collection both in the US and around the world.
Like my sister, 981 women die every day on Earth from pregnancy and birth-related complications.

I became a fierce advocate for gentle birth as a solution for the most pressing problems of our times - a solution that begins at the source.
I sing, I clean house, I write poetry. I cry. And I tell everyone I can, "I Believe in YOU."
The amazing heroic women in labor, they are the truest inspiration, and when they push their babies into the light... I am astonished every time.
I learned that a healthy society is made up of loving, trusting individuals, and that these individuals in turn protect their environment, become stewards of our land, air and water, and they make peace, rather than war.
Research points to the fact that being born without trauma is the foundation for having an intact capacity to love and trust.
I love to receive babies into this world, so crawling around on my knees in the birth room is my best place, and most often you can still find me there.
As a midwife, I am immersed in Oxytocin day and night.
My first experience of having a baby was about as natural as birth can be, and though I didn't know it at the time, it set my feet on a path that eventually led me to become a childbirth author and a midwife.
I became a passionate seeker of childbirth knowledge.
