“Remember this, for it is as true and true gets: Your body is not a lemon. You are not a machine. The Creator is not a careless mechanic. Human female bodies have the same potential to give birth well as aardvarks, lions, rhinoceri, elephants, moose, and water buffalo. Even if it has not been your habit throughout your life so far, I recommend that you learn to think positively about your body.”
Ina May Gaskin, Ina May's Guide to Childbirth

“There is no other organ quite like the uterus. If men had such an organ they would brag about it. So should we”
Ina May Gaskin

“It is important to keep in mind that our bodies must work pretty well, or their wouldn't be so many humans on the planet.”
Ina May Gaskin, Ina May's Guide to Childbirth
