Just a  few things  people say...

“Experiences have clearly shown that an approach which ‘de-medicalizes’ birth, restores dignity and humanity to the process of childbirth, and returns control to the mother is also the safest approach.” Michel Odent, MD

 

“When enough women realize that birth is a time of great opportunity to get in touch with their true power, and when they are willing to assume responsibility for this, we will reclaim the power of birth and help move technology where it belongs–in the service of birthing women, not their master.” – Christiane Northrup

 

“There is power that comes to women when they give birth. They don’t ask for it, it simply invades them. Accumulates like clouds on the horizon and passes through, carrying the child with it.” – Sheryl Feldman

"Attending births is like growing roses. You have to marvel at the ones that just open up and bloom at the first kiss of the sun but you wouldn’t dream of pulling open the petals of the tightly closed buds and forcing them to blossom to your timeline.” ~Gloria Lemay

 

“Just as a woman’s heart knows how and when to pump, her lungs to inhale and her hand to pull back from the fire, so she knows when and how to give birth.” ~ Virginia Di Orio

 

“Whenever and however you intend to give birth, your experience will impact your emotions, your mind, your body and our spirit for the rest of your life.” ~Ina May Gaskin

 

“Loving, knowing, and respecting our bodies is a powerful and invincible act of rebellion in this society.” –Inga Muscio

"Hypnobirthing is not only about producing babies. It is also about creating strong, confident mothers, who learn instinctively to trust themselves and, by using their inner wisdom, make choices that are right for themselves and their families". The Wise Hippo Ltd

 

“Birth should not be a time in a woman’s life when she has to FIGHT for anything.” -Carla Hartley

 

“Labour is not about dilation. Your body knows how to give birth whether or not you ever have a pelvic exam during labour. Birthing women need encouragement to trust their bodies, and to be the stars of their own labours.” - The Doula Guide to Birth

 

Women’s bodies have near-perfect knowledge of childbirth; it’s when their brains get involved that things can go wrong. ~Peggy Vincent, Baby Catcher

 

“When you change the way you view birth, the way you birth will change.” — Marie Mongan
