'A pregnant woman is participating in an event of miraculous significance. She is bringing into existence a new life that did not exist before. The quality of this life will be defined by the quality of birth. The genious of her body is designed to give birth with ease and grace. In our soft warm hands we are holding the keys to our future. Natural birth is a powerful initiation, a rite of passage for all involved. Within the sacred art of birth lies a pathway to the pure potentiality of life. This is birth as nature knows it. This is birth as we know it.'
