"You are a birth servant. Do good without show or fuss. If you must take the lead, lead so that the mother is helped, yet still free and in charge. When the baby is born, they will rightly say: ‘We did it ourselves!’"
~Tao Te Ching
Pretty incredible quote, no? This stunning, insightful quote about birth was written circa the 6th century BC, yet it sounds like something Ina May Gaskin or a doula would say today.
