Suzanne Arms

Since 1973, Suzanne Arms has been an outspoken visionary, multi-book author, photojournalist, inspired teacher and public speaker: wise, passionate and compassionate. She synthesizes earth-based wisdom and modern science about how best to bring humans into the world and care for the mother-baby bond, so that everyone benefits and families can thrive. Her perspective is both broad and deep, as she weaves history, politics, economics, psychology, spirituality, public health, cross-cultural issues, eco-feminism and the feminine into a beautiful tapestry of knowledge.

“Suzanne Arms tells the truth, and she does it with great clarity and compassion.” – Christiane Northrup, MD, Ob/Gyn, Author of Women’s Bodies: Women’s Wisdom

“When childbearing women are informed, supported and empowered, and their rights protected, and when biological processes are honored, children – starting in the womb – can thrive.” – Suzanne Arms  ~Read More
