Untold Stories With Lamia
My First Birth Experience
Surely this can’t be birth! I wanted to escape this abuse. This is not how a mother should be treated at birth!
I wanted to birth like my grandmother when she lived in the village, she birthed her 11 kids with a “قابلة” at home. What a strong woman she was!
My Second Birth Experience
My Cultural Practice

All she needed was me, my smell, touch and my warmth.
Here, I saw the beauty of free birth… birth is certainly psychological and sacred.
