Having a baby is the true “change of life.” Women who go through labor and birth fully supported often emerge from the experience changed forever. One of my patients who had her two children at home told me: “My births were absolute peak experiences of ecstasy and spiritual fulfillment. Nothing I’ve ever experienced before or since has come anywhere close. As a result of my experiences, I now trust my body implicitly.”
No other experience puts a woman in touch with the process of creation as literally and vividly as that of giving birth. And no birth experience can connect her to the source as directly as a natural birth.
