Cruelty Free MIDWIFERY & Back to BasicsMailing List
This list is being organized by DHARMA which is concerned with cruelty-free agrarian survival even in urban and suburban areas - internationally, nationally, regionally, and even in our own neighborhood. Midwifery is a back2basics craft and very popular amongst the spiritually inclined, country folk, and other alternative lifestyles.

We are looking for announcements regarding informative websites, upcoming events related to midwifery, and midwifery stories. However this list is regarding a cruelty-free vegetarian all-natural perspective to midwifery. Your input is needed and very much appreciated.

18cMidwives
Gabrielle Long Wright
MidwyfeGabrielle@prodigy.net

This group will be directed toward a serious study of midwives & their role in the context of their society, social class & culture. I anticipate that many members will be re-enactors (those folks that set up 18c military-style encampments in your town park and try to give the visiting public a taste of "what life was like before microwave ovens & VCRs", complete with mock-battles), however all are welcome to share information & discussion on the topic.

This is not a forum for PC-feminist, neo-pagan or revisionist OPINION, but will be based on an exploration of original sources, to the extent that they are available .
