Rachelle Garcia Seliga takes us on a riveting ride of midwifery history and how understanding our physiology can facilitate an empowered birth experience, support our health from womb to tomb and birth the culture change we need to support maternal health. 

In this episode, we discuss:

  • How the witch hunts —which targeted midwives—and racism have influenced how we understand gynecology and what’s “normal” for women’s reproductive care and birth
  • The three physiologic requirements a woman has in labor and birth to feel empowered by her birth experience
  • The #1 need we have in labor, birth and postpartum to be able to lay the foundation for transforming our health and relationship to our bodies post-pregnancy
