Inspirational Birth Quotes

Ina May Gaskin, CPM – Spiritual Midwifery (1977)

We have found that there are laws as constant as the laws of physics, electricity, or astronomy whose influence on the process of the birthing cannot be ignored.  The midwife or doctor attending births must be flexible enough to discover the way these laws work and learn how to work with them.  Pregnant and birthing mothers are elemental forces, in the same sense that gravity, thunderstorms, earthquakes, and hurricanes are elemental forces.  In order to understand the laws of their energy flow, you have to love and respect them for their maginificence at the same time that you study them with the accuracy of a true scientist.  A midwife or obstetrician needs to understand about how the energy of childbirth flows – to no know is to be like a physicist who doesn’t understand about gravity.
