Stepping out

This is a conversation that occurred this summer on facebook between some incredible mamas and birthworkers telling stories, illuminating how racism, class, warfare, medical violence, exclusivity/ignorance of the natural birth community, nationality,and more play out in the way that people percieve themselves, their world, and childbearing. I am putting this here because I was so inspired by the level of discourse, the intersecting but unique points of views. some bad-ass mamas building with one another is a beautiful thing.

Verily, you will not find anything like this anywhere else. Enjoy and appreciate it here.
