"Birthing a baby can be an empowering experience ... "Giving birth truly has
the potential to transform the way in which we think about ourselves, even
while many obstacles have been put in our paths to keep us from experiencing
the power that is possible. Imagine if the majority of women who gave birth
were to emerge from their labor beds with a renewed sense of the strength
and power of their bodies as well as their capacity for ecstasy."
