"Unlike your ancestors, you need two kinds of knowing to birth from within. The first, and most basic, is primordial knowing - the intuitive knowing in your bones (not your intellect). The second kind of knowing is modern knowing - being savvy about the hospital culture and how to birth within it." - Pam England
