Woman gives birth in the wild.

Here is a woman totally in tuned with her ability to create and to birth.  Some may call her a primitive human, but it seems like the more connected to Earth and primitive women are, the less complicated birthing is for them. This is an interesting idea to ponder… In the West, birthing has become an event which commonly uses medical intervention. In countries where women have no choice but to simply squat and have their babies when time comes, that is just what they do! Have we created our collective consciousness of complicating birth? Just as every animal knows what to do when it comes time to birthing, we also have the inherit knowing somewhere inside.  A baby knows how to be birthed just as a mama knows how to birth. It’s the most primal knowing of becoming! It’s so strange that we have become accustomed to relying on somebody else to tell us how to birth our very own creation….


Check out how mama elephant knows exactly what to do to resuscitate her baby.


A C-shaped spine helps to move baby down the birth canal. Check out how this chimp utilizes the shape in an unusual way! I really hate to see these animals living and giving birth in cages, but i am grateful to have to opportunity to see this birth.
