“I think one of the best things we could do would be to help women/parents/families discover their own birth power, from within themselves. And to let them know it’s always been there, they just needed to tap into it.” John H. Kennell, MD
“Birth is not only about making babies. Birth is about making mothers- strong, competent, capable mothers who trust themselves and know their inner strength” Barbara Katz Rothman, PhD
“In surrendering to birth, we also learn about our role on the earth: we are neither the rulers nor the architects of creation. Life comes through us, simply and gracefully, when we allow it.” Sarah Buckley
