This meeting is an extraordinary opportunity to meet and listen to Ina May Gaskin, one of the fundamental figures of the world movement in favor of respected childbirth and the revaluation of the role of the midwife. Originally from a country -the United States- that eliminated the profession of midwife at the height of the medicalization of childbirth, Ina May Gaskin knew in the 70s to resurrect the lost profession, and recover a way of doing and being with the woman of childbirth that had succumbed to the technological tide and the supremacy of the doctor.
His book “Spiritual Midwifery” became the bedside book for many other professionals who saw the vision that delivering childbirth was more than just a medical act, and his midwifery school at The Farm, the only place in the United States to learn the authentic trade.
She knew how to connect with the ancestral wisdom of women who for millennia have helped to be born one generation after another, incorporating at the same time the current knowledge and resources of science for a more humane and pleasant birth, and also safer, and elevate the work of the midwife from profession to art.
Ina May Gaskin recapitulates the knowledge of a life dedicated to birth, and transmits the wisdom derived from her experience, goes beyond techniques and procedures, and delves into the psychological, emotional, spiritual, social and gender aspects of the most important event and transcendent of the life of any human being: birth.
She is the author of several books and a contributor to a documentary “orgasmic birth”, which has helped reveal the multiple levels of experience and the heightened states of consciousness that occur during labor and birth, when the appropriate conditions are met.
