History of Birth: Natural Birth isn’t a new concept!

Happy pregnant coupleYou’ve been misled … How we birth may have changed but our bodies haven’t! 

⁠We recognise that medical intervention helps save lives and is needed in special circumstances. However, did you know our ancient mothers and sisters all birthed naturally without the use of anesthesia or many of the interventions that are common today. 

Natural birth is not a new concept! 

​​Dr. Grantly Dick-Read, an English obstetrician was one of the first ‘modern’ doctors to forward the concept of natural birthing in the 1920′s. Since then there have been many influential advocates for natural birth, such as the French obstetrician Michel Odent and leading midwife/author Ina May Gaskin. Popular courses have also been developed to prepare mothers for birth.

It is only in modern times with the influence of modern medicine that the way in which we birth has changed.

In ancient pictures and drawings, you see women birthing in all different upright positions, no medical settings, and only the necessary people there to assist. ⁠
