Birth Culture

As I was reading Birth Matters by Ina May Gaskin, I discovered that many of the my beliefs about natural childbirth were being echoed back to me in this book.  As I continue to explore birth or birth culture if you will, I realize that there is a community of strong women who also share these ideas and beliefs about childbirth. These women, like me, feel empowered by the birthing process, and the act of becoming a mother. They are, not only forever changed but also impassioned by this rite of passage. With that said, I do eventually plan on sharing more of my thoughts on the subject matter. In the meantime however, this post that simply alludes to some of what I am thinking about, will have to do.
