Why so many weeks?
Up until a 100 years ago you would have seen others in your community birth naturally before you yourself did it, because birth happened at home with the mother being supported by family and friends. You would have seen and heard what a truly physiologic birth was like, which is now only about 1% of births in the US. I've put this class together to offer in one series what you would have learned over years
