A new look at the natural birth process and how modern obstetrics may be inadvertently interfering and causing the very complications it seeks to avoid. Midwife Janet Meek writes about her experiences as mother and midwife and shares her “secrets” for cooperating with the natural process. Dare to reclaim birth by releasing inhibitions, exploring the sexuality of birth, and learning how to enter non-ordinary states of consciousness!
Birth – Wild And Sacred tells the story of how Janet Meek, a US Diplomat, entered a deep, and ultimately very spiritual, journey when she gave birth to her own sons (two of them at home) and then went on to become a Certified Professional Midwife and helped several hundred women give birth in their own homes and in birth centers in Texas in the 1990’s.
Along the way she discovered some secrets of the Ancient Feminine Wisdom, the most key one of which is the need for women to go into non-ordinary states of consciousness in order to give birth.
“Now I am a grandmother and the snow on top of my head has cooled me down a little … I hope this cooling will help me tell truths that are powerful, but also gentle.”
In the late 1990’s she wanted to familiarize birthing women with non-ordinary states of consciousness before the birth, so she partnered with The Monroe Institute to develop a pioneering childbirth educational series (Opening the Way – Support for Pregnancy and Childbirth – 1997) that utilizes the Hemi-Sync patented sound technology.
This book also points out how important it is to release inhibitions and dare to experience birth as as part of a woman’s sexuality and sacred spirituality.
