Season 2, Episode 6

IN THIS EPISODE WE TALK ABOUT:

  • The importance of midwives in the birthing process
  • The ways that Scottish folk medicine weaves into the ancient tradition of midwifery
  • The persecution of midwives during the Witch Hunts and the loss of these ancestral traditions
  • The importance of reclaiming family medicine in the home

Show Notes

According to a Scottish folk ritual documented in the Carmina Gadelica, a text from the 1800s, Scottish midwives would stand in the doorway of the house during a birth, brace their hands on the doorframe and chant:

Bride! Bride! Come in,
You’re welcome is truly made,
May you give relief to the woman.
