Inviting In the Wild

“I realize that in giving birth, managing a household, raising a child, and composting potato peels in a city, I have learned some things about wildness that even Thoreau could not have known.”
:Lyanda Lynn Haupt

“Birth is not only about making babies. It’s about making mothers — strong, competent, capable mothers who trust themselves and believe in their inner strength.”
: Barbara Katz Rothman
