Ina May's Guide to Childbirth/Ina May Gaskin I really love this book ♥ A dear friend gave me this book when I was expecting my first child. I had never even considered a natural birth with no epidural was an option. This book presents powerful research based arguments in favor of going a more natural way. Without reading this book I would have never have had the amazing natural birth experience I had with my firstborn.
The Film "A Birth Story" is a Graphic Tale of Badass Midwifery
Raw, nostalgic, and lovingly-crafted, Sara Lamm and Mary Wigmore’s feature-length documentary, "A Birth Story: Ina May Gaskin and The Farm Midwives" captures the 1970s countercultural zeitgeist of its titular band of self-taught midwives. Grainy footage depicts the early settlers of The Farm, an intentional community in Tennessee, enacting a utopian mission to “be in community, to raise children in another way, and to take care of the planet.”
