“What we are doing is not a trend, not a movement… it’s a revolution.”

“Your job is not to save society, but to save yourself. You can’t count on society getting better, you can’t control whether or not they do, all you can do is control yourself and you can start by getting off the sinking ship. The ripple effect may cause you to improve society, and that’s just a bonus. Appo deepo bhava. Then and only then will you light a way for others. Freed people free people, but it’s up to them to accept.”

Thankyou so much for sharing on your fabulous site.
I too received the photo of the Himba woman and child on my facebook page and wondered (not with scepticism, because I understand that not every society has lost the plot around birthing), and here you have searched back. Those are the kinds of stories we need so that we know what is possible, and maybe then we can ‘feel’ our way back to something that serves babies, mothers and families better than what the medical model is serving to us.
