Birth Havens

Birth Haven

Birth Havens

Women are capable and strong —

bodies capable and strong.

Birth is a well-tuned process —

the end result of countless

generations of births, inherited

as birthright from foremothers.

Pregnancy — a closed system. Midwives

work for the woman and her baby.

High-touch, low-tech — safest for babe,

self, family, woman — all birthing mavens.
