This book tells the story of how Janet Meek, a US Diplomat, entered a deep, and ultimately very spiritual, journey when she gave birth to her own sons (two of them at home) and then went on to become a Certified Professional Midwife and helped several hundred women give birth in their own homes and in birth centers in Texas in the 1990s. Along the way she discovered some secrets of the Ancient Feminine Wisdom, the most key one of which is the need for women to go into non-ordinary states of consciousness in order to give birth. In the late 1990s she wanted to familiarize birthing women with non-ordinary states of consciousness before the birth, so she partnered with The Monroe Institute to develop a pioneering childbirth educational series (Opening the Way – Support for Pregnancy and Childbirth - 1996) that utilizes the Hemi-Sync patented sound technology. "Birth Wild and Sacred" tells the story about how the guided meditation series and the author's insight about the importance on altered states of consciousness to the birth process came about. This book also points out how medicalized birth often inadvertently interferes with the birth process and how caregivers and families – with or without "Opening the Way" and in accordance with their own spiritual and religious traditions – can create an environment that protects the mother's need for undisturbed, darkened, safe and secure space when she is giving birth. It is also a guide to how women can embrace unmedicated natural birth as a rite of passage into full empowerment, healing injured instinct, restoring intuition, exploring sexuality, and returning the sacred to birth.
