Audio Tapes
Quantity in Basket: none
Code: 984T856
Price: $26.00
Teachers: Robbie Davis-Floyd, Ph.D.
Content: Robbie's unique and vital knowledge and wisdom as well as her passion, humor and sensitivity about birth are obvious throughout this set of tapes. Among many other topics, she talks about evolution and culture, the significance of birthing positions, labor and sexuality, cultural stereotypes, industrialism of childbirth, birth as a rite of passage, fundamental cultural oppositions to normal birth, and the technocratic approach to birth as opposed to the holistic model. What has become of birth has happened on many strata over all of human history, and we must understand that progression if we are to ever effect real change in birth as it is today. This presentation is riveting, and you will learn more here than in a solid month's worth of reading.
