As I’ve mentioned before, I love collecting quotes about birth. This is a great one about power and birth from Christiane Northrup:
“Imagine what might happen if the majority of women emerged from their labor beds with a renewed sense of the strength and power of their bodies and their capacity for ecstasy through giving birth. When enough women realize that birth is a time of great opportunity to get in touch with their true power, and then they are willing to assume responsibility for this, we will reclaim the power of birth and help move technology where it belongs–-in the service of birthing women, not as their master.”
—Christiane Northrup MD
I found this on the Birthing Utopia blog.
On an unrelated note, I absolutely LOVE the glass pendants available from Family Tree Glass. I bought several of the birthy belly pendants at the LLLI conference in Chicago in 2007. Since then, the artist has started making wonderful family pendants and also slinging mama pendants that are just phenomenally beautiful. I love them so much. My birthday is coming up. Perhaps my husband will read this and take a hint…;-)
