Ina May on Midirs

Midirs Midwifery Digest, the premiere midwifery publication in England, has recently posted an interview with Ina May Gaskin, one of the fouding midwives of The Farm and an international midwifery leader and homebirth midwife.  The podcast of the interview is available here, and the written version can be found here.  It’s really fascinating, once you get past all of the introductory stuff, especially in terms of how Ina May discovered midwifery, and how she met her husband, Stephen Gaskin, and the early years of the Farm (including her first birth!).  Not that any of this is new information (just pick up a copy of Spiritual Midwifery), but it’s fabulous to hear Ina May talk about it in her own words and her own voice.  She’s a living legend!  Enjoy!

    I am so crazy about Ina May. I’m wanting to take the kids to The Farm for a field trip one day!
