When I was a little girl, other little girls wanted to be princesses, nurses, rock stars, and ballerinas.. I wanted to be an anthropologist with a heavy interest in paleontology. When I went to college, I changed that to the 'more interesting' abnormal psychology with a heavy interest in forensic anthropology. Something was still missing...
Finally, when I became a mother, I realized that I was working with the past too much, I wanted to have an influence on the future. That, along with my strong personal convictions about pregnancy, birth, and parenting, led to my pursuing doula/midwifery.
It should come as no surprise, then, that I am absolutely in love with The Mother's Advocate film series, "The Timeless Way". Take a few moments, pull up a chair and settle in with a hot cup of tea. This is an amazingly insightful and educational look at childbirth throughout time immortal.
