"We're terrified of birth"

Ina May Gaskin always says it so simply - we are terrified of birth.  Thus, we are so easily exploited.  Watch these two videos recommended by her showing an elephant and chimpanzee giving birth - they are not afraid, they are comfortable with their bodies.  If mainstream movies & TV would showcase more births with women like this mama elephant we might be able to trust our bodies more. 

Watch the videos here at Feministing
