Since my previous post just touched on this issue, I wanted to share another quote. This one is from the Winter 2008 issue of Midwifery Today in an article titled From the Homefront to the Frontlines:
“Although the popularly desired outcome is ‘Healthy mother, healthy baby,’ I think there is room in that equation for ‘Happy, non-traumatized, empowered and elated mother and baby.'”
I completely agree!
