9780971910218: Ancient Map for Modern Birth: Preparation, Passage, and Personal Growth During Your Childbearing Year

The integrative model of childbirth described in this book will provide women with the information needed to prepare for birth, how to think and feel about labor, and how to tell their story. During their childbearing year, women traverse two paths at once: an inner path of psychological and spiritual awareness and an outer path of practical approaches to birth in modern-day culture. The book combines scientific research with meditation, ceremony, art, and mythic stories, which not only prepares childbearing women to go beyond their edge into uncharted territory but to find their way home again. The underlying message throughout is not to strive for a perfect birth but to be mindful of the mythic journey, of all the mothers who have come before—an awareness that leads not only to the birth of a child but to the birth of a new self.

About the Author:

Through her observations and experiences as a nurse-midwife and mother (who birthed once by cesarean, once at home), Pam realized the need for a radically new model of childbirth preparation and a birth story process. She is the author of Birthing From Within, Labyrinth of Birth, and her newest book, Ancient Map for Modern Birth to be released February 6, 2017. Pam England founded the organization Birthing From Within (2000) to offer childbirth mentor and doula training and certification; she also founded Birth Story Listening, a distance-learning course. Pam lives in Albuquerque. Over the past 18 years, she has connected with countless parents and birth professionals around the US and world.


 “A soulful, authoritative, and exquisitely written guide for the heroine’s journey we call childbirth. I highly recommend this beautiful gift of insight and knowledge.” —Christiane Northrup, author, Goddesses Never Age

“Offers warmth and wisdom, as well as deep compassion, and invites us into the awe-inspiring emotional and spiritual terrain that lies at the heart of childbearing.” —Sarah Buckley, author, Gentle Birth, Gentle Mothering

“The layering of the book into four parts—the Call, the Tasks of Preparation, the Gates of Laborland, and the Warrior’s Return— provides a solid organization, and even a sense of heroic journey. The many exercises make the presentation quite experiential and very useful for both practitioners and pregnant families.” Lewis Mehl-Madrona, author, Coyote Medicine

“Pam England and Virginia Bobro have crafted a mystical yet practical look at pregnancy, birth, and mothering . . . Its soothing guidance, enchanting stories, and creative exercises pave the ideal first steps along the parenting journey.”  —Amity Hook-Sopko, executive editor, Green Child Magazine

“As a midwife, psychologist, and artist, Pam England brings a one-of-a-kind perspective to childbirth. Because her own personal birth transformations laid the foundation for her ancient map, we can follow her advice confidently. Her book prepares us for a successful birth in a deep and powerful way.” —Peggy O’Mara Former, author, Natural Family Living
