Secrets of Childbirth

How does the ancient traditional knowledge of femininity, pregnancy, and birth fit into the modern contemporary world?

No matter where – in a small village in the mountains, a large coastal city, or a remote tribe – birth is the center of humanity, and without it we have no future.

Secrets Of Childbirth describes a ten-year anthropological journey to the farthest corners of the earth and offers the modern Western world ancient and traditional knowledge concerning femininity, pregnancy, and birth.

Tsippy Monat, an anthropologist and experienced doula, has sat by old and seasoned midwives in Madagascar, India, the Native American tribes in South Dakota, Alaska, the Tafilah region in Jordan, and many other places in the world, to imbibe their wisdom firsthand. In her fascinating book, she reveals what she has learned:

  • *The essence of “the woman who knows”, the traditional midwife of various cultures
  • *Unique traditional techniques and rituals for caring for pregnant women and the process of childbirth itself
  • *Social-cultural perceptions of women in the “old” world, accompanied by revelations of spiritual and practical knowledge
