In any society, the way a woman gives birth and the kind of care given to her and the baby points as sharply as an arrowhead to the key values of the culture.More Sheila Kitzinger quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Childbirth takes place at the intersection of time; in all cultures it links past, present and future. In traditional cultures birth unites the world of 'now' with the world of the ancestors, and is part of the great tree of life extending in time and eternity.More Sheila Kitzinger quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Birth isn't something we suffer but something we actively do and exult in!More Sheila Kitzinger quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Fathers' sharing in the birth experience can be a stimulus for men's freedom to nurture, and a sign of changing relationships between men and women. In the same way, women's freedom to give birth at home is a political decision, an assertion of determination to reclaim the experience of birth. Birth at home is about changing society.More Sheila Kitzinger quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
