This book was by far the BEST purchase I made in preparation of childbirth. I think I read it about three times within the finally weeks before my son arrived. But what Western societies have forgotten that was well-known by all tribal societies is that any woman can breastfeed, whether or not she has ever been pregnant. In fact, in many of these tribes the grandmothers would nurse the children while the mothers were out working.

Childbirth is hard, painful. That is why they call it labour. They hate the general, that’s true,’ Judith replied. They think she is a monster, a gorgon, the bride of Shaitan, who has come to earth in the form of a human. What they will see when I walk through the market, or step into a cool, dark shop seeking treatment from an apothecary for various female problems is a respectable, polite, modest young woman, with her hair beneath a veil, going about her daily business. Why should anyone look at her and think: There goes General Nazet ?’

For World Breastfeeding Week 2019 I am doing a series, "Keep it simple with the Milk Meg!" Here is my first one! Besides the obvious such as your baby needs a . .appy change crying is a indication that they need something and most of these things will be resolved through a breastfeed. What is different about our culture now? Is it different?

He is thought to have written the classic children's tale The History of Little Goody Two-Shoes (1765).

She thought it important enough to revise it seven years later, on her return from the Crimea. On the advice of her friend John Stuart Mill she did not attempt to publish it. A great advocate of women’s equality, he was none the less probably right: the anguish she felt was so nakedly apparent that she might have subsequently found it difficult to get men in power to take her health-care concerns seriously.

This book restores to women the legacy of their foremothers--the childbirth wisdom developed over the ages, throughout the world, by women in cultures other than our own. Author Judith Goldsmith set out to recover what came before the high-tech practices of modern medicine. Now, for today's mothers, she conveys the customs, practices, and lore passed from woman to woman in the world's traditional societies. Here are remarkable stories of pregnancy, childbirth, and nurturing--the Japanese woman who knows she is pregnant by the increased strength of her pulse..the Tiv mother who delivers her child in a specially constructed birth chair...the Ibo woman lovingly massaging her newborn according to an ancient procedure. In her examination of nearly 500 cultures, the author found pregnancy to be a time of excellent physical and mental health, often with an emphasis on physical activity throughout pregnancy to facilitate delivery. In Uganda, for example, a pregnant woman works in the fields until contractions begin and occasionally lifts a moderately heavy burden--a waterpot or bundle of firewood--to stimulate and shorten labor. Among the Tlinget of Alaska, as in many traditional societies, labor lasts no longer than two or three hours. Many tribal peoples, including the Negritos of the Philippines, are able to diagnose and correct a breech birth through the technique of massage. And for the Siriono of Bolivia, childbirth is a joyful public event. Childbirth Wisdom will fascinate both the layperson and the professional. The author's observations--on such topics as diet and prenatal care, midwifery, massage during delivery, birth position, and breast-feeding--are certain to affect permanently the way we all view pregnancy and childbirth, and add a new dimension to the theories of Lamaze and Leboyer.
Comments to eBook Childbirth Wisdom: From the World's Oldest Societies
Kulalas
Of the dozen books I have read, this, by far, possesses some of the most empowering and helpful information about birth as a natural process--right up there with Emergency Childbirth by Dr. Gregory White and Ina May's Guide to Childbirth. Of course, these tribal cultures were not perfect, either, and not all of their practices should be adopted.

For example, most all of the cultures examined in this book believed that colostrum, or pre-milk, was not good or even harmful for babies; a woman would not nurse until her milk came in. It is well-known in Western societies that colostrum possesses very high levels of antibodies and transfers immunities from mother to child, earning itself the nickname "liquid gold".

But what Western societies have forgotten that was well-known by all tribal societies is that any woman can breastfeed, whether or not she has ever been pregnant. In fact, in many of these tribes the grandmothers would nurse the children while the mothers were out working. People in Western societies have outrageous beliefs about breastfeeding, such as: many women cannot breastfeed, some babies are allergic to breastmilk, or that it is possible to "run out" of milk. All of these beliefs are 100% false.

The above is just one example of the invaluable knowledge possessed in this book. It is a horrible shame that this book has gone out of print.

Must read for everyone

This book asks universal questions about reproductive matters, and explores answers as presented by a wide comparison of tribal customs.

This book ought to be newly released, so that a new generation of mothers can discover it.

Best empowering look at biological birth so far and I've read many many many birth books (including, of course, Ina May's Guide to Childbirth, Unassisted Birth and Childbirth Without Fear). This is pre "midwife" - a true look at biological instinctual birth and the cultures that truly believe in the WOMAN. Whether you're preparing for an indie birth or fully assisted - this is THE book you'll want to read to really understand not only a trust of your body, but that childbirth risks were NOT that high in tribal cultures prior to "civilized" ways of life. A great look at how lifestyle is a big contributor to common modern complications.
Of course, as with all cultures, some practices may not be right for everyone (though even their interventions weren't significantly intrusive or caused nearly the iatrogenic complications of today's births in homes and hospitals). Those methods are few and far between in this book with mostly an innate believe in the body's ability.

This came recommended... or I just saw the title mentioned in Ina May's Guide to Childbirth. This book was by far the BEST purchase I made in preparation of childbirth. I think I read it about three times within the finally weeks before my son arrived.

As others have commented, this book is empowering and beautiful. I only wish it were still in print and contained more images of some of the wonderfully described infant carriers and pregnancy belts. If you see this at an affordable price, buy it up. It's a priceless gift.

Great book!

I have now read a plethora of books related to natural childbirth & conscious parenting. This book beautifully weaves together cultural research gathered from hundreds of indigenous women with narrative anecdotes that show birthing traditions from all over the planet. The fact that diverse indigenous people SHARE the same knowledge & practice while WESTERN "modern" societies have invented completely divergent practices, tells us something is wrong with our birthing industry. This is a BEAUTIFUL & EMPOWERING read... it will stand out in my labor-library as one of the best books I've read on the past & future of birthing.
Really Good Book Full of Old World Wisdom.
