It matters because it is the way we all begin our lives outside of our source,
our mothers’ bodies.
It’s the means through which we enter and feel our first impression of the wider world.
For each mother, it is an event that shakes and shapes her to her innermost core.
Women’s perceptions about their bodies and their babies’ capabilities will be
deeply influenced by the care they receive around the time of birth.”
