Midwives throughout history have helped lay the foundation of health, trust and safety for both mothers and babies.

The name TwoStones comes from the Hebrew word for birth stool, which translates as ‘two stones/bricks’. When the two stones were set in place for the birthing woman she could then lean, sit, squat, kneel and even birth on them. The two stones were used as a support for women, much like that of the midwife herself.

Childbirth takes place at the intersection of time; in all cultures it links past, present and future. In traditional cultures birth unites the world of ‘now’ with the world of the ancestors, and is part of the great tree of life extending in time and eternity.
