Honouring birth

Darkness, or almost, and . . . silence. 
A profound peace settles in the room.
You can feel the respect which naturally
attends the arrival of a baby.
One doesn’t shout in a church.
One spontaneously lowers one’s voice.
If there is such a thing as a sanctified place, surely
it is the room the child is about to enter.

– Frederick Leboyer, quote from the book Birth Without Violence, read the whole book here
