     Prob. not exactly what you're looking for... but I thought I'd show you anyways.

    "The midwife considers the miracle of childbirth as normal, and leaves it alone unless there's trouble. The obstetrician normally sees childbirth as trouble; if he leaves it alone, it's a miracle."

     thank you, heather . t was a great quote . not quite what i was looking for , but thought provoking none the less . i am looking more for a quote on the positive impact that midwives have on birth and mothering . in all senses , physically/emotionally/spiritually  .

    Re: quote help

    I like, "Every mother is a midwife", I cannot attribute the author though.


    "The Voice

    There is a voice inside of you
    That whispers all day long,
    "I feel this is right for me,
    I know that this is wrong."
    No teacher, preacher, parent, friend
    Or wise man can decide
    What's right for you--just listen to
    The voice that speaks inside."
