Need for Control

I love witnessing the process of birth. Through the years I have noticed there is one thing that helps this process transpire into something amazing! The laboring women gives all control to her laboring body. This loss of control lets her fully relax and enables her body to do what it is made to do. Ina May Gaskin says “we are the only mammal that doubts our ability to give birth.” Think about if women could give up that need for control and let their natural instincts take over, everyone could experience this magnificent, natural process of labor and birth.
