Manage episode 287867062 series 2875126
How can we listen for the deep and authentic wisdom of our body’s inner knowing, whilst benefitting from the expertise of the Western medical paradigm? Dr. Jennifer Lang, an obstetrician and gynecologist with a specialty in gynecologic oncology, shares how her experience of surrendering to the authority of her own body’s wisdom during her natural birth radically changed her approach to obstetrics. We also discuss the vital role of consent - both in the medical setting and in intimate realms - which her 2nd book, "Consent," explores from the perspective of teen-agers navigating intimacy, sexuality, and honoring their boundaries.
