Elephant Birth

I got this amazing link from the yahoo doula group. Even through video, the power is overwhelming. Or maybe it's just me, lol, but I got awfully choked up.

If you notice it, my favorite part is as she's just about to give birth and she's walking backwards, swinging, lifting her legs...and then all of the other elephants come and circle around her, offering their support and protection. Not just the females, but the whole tribe - that is how we should treat birth in our culture.


Beautiful
