When did women forget they were built for this? That their bodies are strong and capable of birthing babies the natural way...without drugs, without surgery, without medical interventions.
Over the past 60 years, birth has come to be treated as a scary medical procedure that must be overseen by a team of doctors and surgeons. The birth process is a rite of passage, a turning point in a woman's life, the introduction of a woman to her most powerful self. Birth is empowering when women are able to feel their bodies work.
So why have we taken that away? Made them feel inadequate, weak, frail and dependent on the system? Can we change for the better - or have we been numbed into a new normal?
