Great article about low-intervention birth

I have to share this great article — from a mainstream source — somewhere. It says lots of the things I hear myself saying when I talk to clients (and non-) about birth.
Love this quote: “I wish American women were told the truth about birth — the truth about their bodies, their abilities, and the dangers of technology. Mostly I wish all pregnant women could hear what Libby Bogdan-Lovis, my doula, told me: ‘Birthing a baby requires the same relinquishing of control as does sex — abandoning oneself to the overwhelming sensation and doing so in a protective and supportive environment.’ If only more women knew how sexy a scientific birth can be.”
