QUOTES
There is a secret in our society, and it�s not that childbirth is painful. It�s that women are strong. ~ Laura Stavoe Harm

Birth is not only about making babies. Birth is about making mothers ~ strong, competent, capable mothers who trust themselves and know their inner strength. ~ Barbara Katz Rothman

Just as a woman�s heart knows how and when to pump, her lungs to inhale, and her hand to pull back from fire, so she knows when and how to give birth. ~ Virginia Di Orio
