The Roots of Natural Mothering

by Janice Marsh-Prelesnik

The natural process of the growth of a new baby, from conception to birth, and the care of the motherbaby does not need to be considered a medical event, but rather, a holy, sacred time in the lives of a new family.

Attitudes and beliefs will affect how a woman births and how she cares for her baby. Giving this experience over to the medical care industry effects how a woman feels about herself both as a woman, and as a mother.

When a mother chooses to become a natural mother she chooses to connect, or reconnect, with biological order. The wisdom of nature and natural process are her guides. This ancient knowledge comes to a natural mother through her intuition.

My hope is that this book assists women in delving deeply into life's mysteries. Caring for a baby is the most important work you will ever do. Blessings on your journey!
