Bioneers’ Interview with Mohawk midwife Katsi Cook

Our power as women blows me away. Change happens one by one. Every action we take can inspire one small bit of change, one small ripple of peace that someone might carry with them through the rest of their life.

“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.
