Midwifery Today Issue 81 Theme: Primal Health
The focus of this issue is Primal Health. The Primal Period is the time between conception and the end of the first year after birth. An event occurring during that time—whether it be drug exposure, death of a parent, or a stressful birth—can have irreversible effects on the health of an individual for the rest of his or her life. The state of health at the end of this period is called Primal Health.

Pregnancy is a time to get rooted—rooted in love, rooted in patience, rooted to the Mother. This image was taken with that concept in mind. The ripened mother stands strong with the tree—bearing the fruit of precious, sacred life.
