about informing birth

why inFORMing birth?

Because birth is not only powerful, it can be an informing experience, changing not only a woman's identity into that of a mother, but her character as well. In this modern world of medicalized birth, this can only happen through informed choice. Women need information; women need answers. Women need to know the truth, not only about risks and procedures, but about themselves.

“We have a secret in our culture, and it’s not that birth is painful. It’s that women are strong.” ~ Laura Stavoe Harm
