The Dancing Doula Podcast

Sep 11, 2020

Welcome back! In this episode, I want to discuss what birth looked like in ancient times and how it's evolved to include the standards many of us go by today. In this episode I discuss:

• Where, when, how and with who people gave birth in ancient times

• Why the shift from midwife to doctor happened

• The origins of hospital birth and "pain free" birth

• Losing our innate and inherited wisdom around birth

• The link between the Women's Rights Movement and birth autonomy

• How doulas answered the call for more support and wisdom in the birth space

• Doulas in the obstetrical system

As mentioned in this episode, I have an online community on Patreon where like-minded people can dive deeper into the topics discussed. Expect in-depth group discussions, behind-the-scenes footage from my interviews, tutorials, online classes, and more! You can subscribe using the link on my website home page:
