Birthwork is an important holistic complement to existing bodies of knowledge about caring for the birthing mother. It is for the professional and non-professional birthworker alike, detailing how we can care compassionately with both a ‘thinking mind’ and ‘feeling heart’, through:
• attunement to intuition and instinct
• effective communication
• negotiating relationship
• finding balance in times of stress
• working with labour
• honouring the mother and child
– and above all, acknowledging the power of spirit and the ultimate mystery of birth.
While Birthwork offers a wealth of practical advice, enlivened by many personal stories, it is much more than a work book. Informed always by the richness of its life affirming philosophy, it is an open invitation to loving kindness and presence.
We are left in no doubt about the significance of working with birth. How we choose to behave towards and care for the mother has a profound influence on the way she births and feels about her experience. Ultimately, how well we care affects the wellbeing of future generations of parents, children and society.
