Project Description

Reducing fear of childbirth in U.S. culture: Ina May Gaskin at TEDxSacramento

In this wonderful informative video Ina May Gaskin talks about how as humans, we are the only species doubting our natural capacity to give birth, how easy our society scars women and how profitable it is.

She shows the difference between US birth culture, and those of Mexico, Peru, Wales, and other countries that encourage the natural childbirth, that encourage listening to the mother during labor and providing her with what she needs. Ina May also shows concrete data to compare what c-section and instrumental deliveries the US birthing culture is producing, and compares it with the farm deliveries she and her colleagues have facilitated since 1970s.
