"For the last 40 years, Ina May Gaskin, founder of the Farm Midwifery Center, has stood at the forefront of the midwifery movement. Using techniques learned from traditional, indigenous midwifes from all over the world, Ina May has attended over 1200 births. She is the author of the classic Spiritual Midwifery and Ina May's Guide to Childbirth. Come learn how medical procedures can hinder labor, how to minimize the risk of epidurals, why most cesarean sections are unnecessary and how to create a supportive relationship with birth-care providers."
