Jeannine Parvati Baker - Philosophy

Philosophy

As the daughter of a First Nation father (Ute tribe) and as a longtime student of Baba Hari Dass, Jeannine Parvati Baker's midwifery philosophy was one of earth-based values and nonharming principles. She was fond of the idea that midwives should attend only one birth per month. Her idea was that limiting the number of births allows the midwife to integrate the miracle and deeply savor the lessons of each birth. She also liked to say that she only kept one chart for each birthing woman and that was her astrological chart. She often said that “Every mother is a midwife." - Gloria LeMay, Midwifery Educator & Traditional Birth Attendant, Vancouver, Canada http://www.glorialemay.com/blog/?p=231
