On this episode we speak with Jeanice Barcelo on the technocratization of the human birthing process. Barcelo is a transformational teacher in the movement to expose the violence of hospital birth and to return birthing to the home. She is the author of Birth Trauma and the Dark Side of Modern Medicine: Exposing Systematic Violence During Hospital Childbirth and the Hijacking of Human Love, a work that examines the horrors of technologically-managed pregnancy and childbirth, and how we as a society have come to accept this as a substitute for what was once a truly divine and spiritual event.
Barcelo has spent the last 15 years uncovering the long-term and inter-generational impact of primal trauma on the human body-mind-spirit system. She views the ever-escalating amount of violence being inflicted on babies and pregnant mothers as part of a social agenda. Barcelo has lectured extensively on this and has created an important curriculum to help end the lineage on abuse, violence and trauma, and restore humanity’s capacity to love.
