In the early ‘70s a caravan of buses traveled from California to Tennessee. En route several women gave birth, with their friends and fellow travelers assisting them. Thus began the journey to “The Farm” a commune they created in rural Tennessee. The amazing stories of these “sister-assisted” births are told in Spiritual Midwifery by world famous midwife and natural childbirth advocate Ina Mae Gaskin. A must read for anyone who has ever been born.
