Ancient Map for Modern Birth: Preparation, Passage, and Personal Growth for Your Childbearing Year
Pam England, CNM, MA, author
Pregnancy puts women on the threshold of a great rite of passage; they need a map to get from "here" to "there" without getting lost. Every modern woman has access to the health consumer map showing them how to navigate routine obstetric care. But many women know something is missing from that map--that "something" is the ancient, inner map--and it's in this book. Gathering information is not enough. Wishful thinking is not a plan. ANCIENT MAP FOR MODERN BIRTH shows women how to prepare for, and experience, birth as a heroic journey; engage in an informed consent dialogue; create personal rituals for spiritual well being; how to be solution-focused, and much more.
