What Indigenous Wisdom and Modern Science Tell Us About How to Best Care for Mothers and Babies

“The health care system as we have known it is in chaos, and this includes maternity care.  The system and the mindset that created it are going through a painful and dysfunctional labor-struggling to stay in control.

Suzanne Arms tells the truth, and she does it with great clarity and compassion.  Her vision, put forth so compellingly, can help midwife this system right now.  Like all good birth attendants, Suzanne understands the nature and power of support, understanding and compassion.  Those qualities help a woman, and even a health care system, to let go and allow the new creation to emerge.”
