Theme: Mothering

Throughout life, women find themselves in the role of mothering. With this issue’s theme of “Mothering,” our offerings are diverse. You will find tips on having a good pregnancy to making the best of a cesarean birth to mothers supporting mothers after birth. Our beloved Robin Lim even shares the challenges of mothering one’s mother. As always, our pages are packed with interesting reading from many well-known authors in midwifery along with other new contributors who cover unique and timely subjects.

Articles include:

  • “Tricks of the Trade: Ten Essential Remedies for Homebirth” by Piper Martin. Homeopath Piper Martin shares some tricks for dealing with issues related to homebirth—a change from our usual “tricks.”
  • “Holding Space: With Women in the Labyrinth” by Erica Andrews. In this article, the author uses the metaphor of a labyrinth to discuss the journey that women take with each of their births, with the midwife playing a secondary role.
  • “A Turning Point in the History of Mothering” by Michel Odent. The author ties changes throughout the world in this era to another change: the focus on parenting rather than mothering.
  • “Sage Femme” by Susun Weed. Garden sage, Salvia officinalis, is the subject of this article. Read about how it strengthens uterine contracts and eases labor pain.
  • “Midwifing Birth and Death and Each Other” by Sister MorningStar. “Being a midwife is not something in a school or a book or something that happened before. It is being with a birthing mother with what is happening now.” Sister MorningStar urges us to continue the fight to protect birthing mothers and midwives.
  • “The Mindful Cesarean” by Mary Esther Malloy. While a cesarean is not the ideal birth for most mothers, the author talks about how skin-to-skin contact and kangaroo care can improve the experience for mother and baby.
  • “Birthkeepers: Mothering Our Mothers” by Robin Lim. Frequent writer Robin Lim shares the challenges and rewards of caring for her mother, who suffers from dementia, while continuing her Bali midwifery practice.
  • “Postpartum Mood Disorders” by Aubre Tompkins. This author offers a discussion of the all too common mood disorders that can affect postpartum women, including symptoms, screening and treatment options.
  • “Wisdom of the Midwives: On Posterior.” Midwives discuss their take on how to help ensure a good outcome.
  • “Deep Malnutrition: Understanding Nutritional Histories” by Cindy Morrow. We all know that diet is important for health, but did you know that even the nutrition of our forebears could affect our babies? This article will help midwives understand how to help moms have a healthier pregnancy and better birth.
  • “Trust and Technology: Mothering in a Modern Age” by Deborah Simone. Modern technology brings with it some solutions that are better not being invented. Deborah Simone tells us about one of them.
  • “If We Ever Have an OB Call, Dorham, You’d Better Be There” by Sylvia Dorham. Doula Sylvia Dorham tells a lively and interesting story involving the intersection between midwifery and medical protocols in an emergency medical call.
