Midwifery is cross cultural because physiologic birth is, well… mammalian, and therefore, universal to the human species.  My personal journey, like many community midwives, has been quite an exercise in anthropology–working sometimes within populations that can look homogenous yet have many nuanced subcultures within, as well as working with families from a diverse array of populations.

 

“You row forward looking back, and telling this history is part of helping people navigate toward the future. We need a litany, a rosary, a sutra, a mantra, a war chant for our victories. The past is set in daylight, and it can become a torch we can carry into the night that is the future.” - Rebecca Solnit
