From One Rite to the Next : Jane speaks at The Home Birth Conference

F r o m   O n e  R i t e  t o  t h e  N e x t

the influence of & connection between menarche and childbirth 

The Connection between a woman's experience of menarche and therefore what she takes with her to her experience of childbirth is not often taken into account.
The opportunity and potential healing and transformation, once this is known, can enhance the attention to her life journey, as  a whole rather than simply her experience of childbirth.

This perspective also enables a deeper understanding for when a rite may feel like a 'wrong'

So often childbirth is seen as an isolated incident in a woman's life, however is we take the whole woman into account, more individual care with her specific healing requirements and the transformational possibilities for her can be taken into account.
