  • There is power that comes to women when they give birth. They don't ask for it, it simply invades them. Accumulates like clouds on the horizon and passes through, carrying the child with it.

    Sheryl Feldman
  • There is no other organ quite like the uterus. If men had such an organ they would brag about it. So should we.

    Ina May Gaskin
  • If a doula were a drug, it would be unethical not to use it.

    John H. Kennell, MD
  • Just as a woman's heart knows how and when to pump, her lungs to inhale, and her hand to pull back from fire, so she knows when and how to give birth

    Virginia Di Orio
  • Attending births is like growing roses. You have to marvel at the ones that just open up and bloom at the first kiss of the sun but you wouldn't dream of pulling open the petals of the tightly closed buds and forcing them to blossom to your time line.

    Virginia Di Orio
  • However much we know about birth in general, we know nothing about a particular birth. We must let it unfold with its own uniqueness.

    Gloria Lemay
  • We have a secret in our culture, and it's not that birth is painful. It's that women are strong.

    Elizabeth Noble
  • If a woman doesn't look like a Goddess during birth then someone isn't treating her right.

    Laura Stavoe Harm
  • The whole point of woman-centered birth is the knowledge that a woman is the birth power source. She may need, and deserve, help, but in essence, she always had, currently has, and will have the power.

    Ina May Gaskin
  • Birth is as safe as life gets.

    Heather McCue
  • Birth is not only about making babies. Birth is about making mothers ~ strong, competent, capable mothers who trust themselves and know their inner strength.

    Harriet Hartigan
  • We have a secret in our culture. It's not that birth is painful - it's that women are strong.

    Barbara Katz Rothman
  • If it hurts, get off it, move it around, rub it better.

    Laura Stavoe Harm
  • The same movements that get the baby in, get the baby out.

    Barbara Kott (president of the National Childbirth Trust)
  • Big pain needs big moves.

    Pam England, 'Birthing From Within'
  • Sit! Walk! Stand! Squat! Get active - give birth.

    Juju Sundin, 'Birth Skills'
  • It's only a muscle working and it's user-friendly pain.

  • The power and intensity of your contractions cannot be stronger than you, because it is you.

    Juju Sundin, 'Birth Skills'
  • Offer hugs, not drugs.

    unknown
  • The first intervention in birth, that a healthy woman takes, is when she walks out the front door of her home, in labour. From that first intervention, all others will follow.

    Adina Lebowitz
  • We've put birth in the same category as illness and disease and it's never belonged there.

    Dr. Michael Rosenthal - Obstetrician
  • You are constructing your own reality with the choices you make ... or don't make. If you really want a healthy pregnancy and joyful birth, and you truly understand that you are the one in control, then you must examine what you have or haven't done so far to create the outcome you want.

    Carla Hartley, founder of Trust Birth and the Ancient Art Midwifery Institute
  • If I don't know my options, I don't have any.

    Kim Wildner - Mother's Intention: How Belief Shapes Birth
  • The truth for women living in a modern world is that they must take increasing responsibility for the skills they bring into birth if they want their birth to be normal. Making choices of where and with whom to birth is not the same as bringing knowledge and skills into your birth regardless of where and with whom you birth.

    Diana Korte
  • Courage allows the successful woman to fail - and to learn powerful lessons from the failure - so that in the end, she didn't fail at all.

    Common Knowledge Trust
  • Women today not only possess genetic memory of birth from a thousand generations of women, but they are also assailed from every direction by information and misinformation about birth.

    Maya Angelou
  • I have been taught where women are free, we will learn how they give birth best. They will show us. They will trust us. Look at them and listen closely.
