Hi Mary Eastland --
Birthing has nothing to do with internal power as some here are describing it. Labor and birth are about oxytocin and processes that are automatic and hormonally induced
yeah, I stayed out of this thread, but lots of what has been discussed my wife said about her one experience of childbirth. But one rather major difference was that her birthing experience involved a C-section and lots of morphine due to premature loss of amniotic fluid... So I'm just reading along thinking those naturally occurring painkillers our bodies make sure do make for some interesting altered states of consciousness...
Hmmm, makes me want to rent Altered States again... Or else go read some Huxley...
