About Ancient Map, Other Books & Events

“Pam England has devoted her career to facilitating the birth process and empowering women giving birth. As such, Ancient Map for Modern Birth represents the accumulation of a lifetime of work. The layering of the book—with the Call, the Tasks of Preparation, the Gates of Laborland, and the Warrior’s Return—provides a solid organization, and even a sense of heroic journey.“

Lewis Mehl-Madrona, MD, PhD, author of Narrative Medicine and Healing the Mind Through Story

Ancient Map for Modern Birth is a soulful, authoritative, and exquisitely written guide for the heroine’s journey we call childbirth. I highly recommend this beautiful gift of insight and knowledge.”

  Christine Northrup, MD, author of Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom

"Hi Pam, 

I want to congratulate you on your book! I've been reading it and shared it with a group of teachers. All were ... deeply touched by the idea of the hero's journey being an ancient map for birth. So much compassion comes forth when you make this parallel. It's very meaningful work.

Thank you for writing this book! It will be another tool in my own thinking and they way I communicate to my students about birth. I am grateful."
