Not to Deliver You

Ani DiFranco talks about her homebirth.   

Quote:  “To take birthing out of women’s hands and deny us the continuum of eons of wisdom and experience is to eject us from the very seat of our power.”

but my job here
is not to deliver you
but to hold a mirror
till you see how

  2. Thank you for posting this! The births of my children were influenced greatly by Ina May Gaskin and I am thrilled to see that Ani had the same kind of experience. She did make a lot of good statements.
