Bioneers’ Interview with Mohawk midwife and activist Katsi Cook

Our power as women is magnificent and endless. We have the ability to heal ourselves and those around us. Our primal instincts in birth and mothering are protective and vital to our health as women and to the health of our families and communities. 

“Our grandmas tell us we’re the first environment, that our babies inside of our bodies see through the mother’s eyes and hear through the mother’s ears. Our bodies as women are the first environment of the baby coming, and the responsibility of that is such that we need to reawaken our women to the power that is inherent in that transformative process that birth should be.”

From the 1999 Bioneers Conference,  Marin Center near San Francisco, CA.
