In some Spanish-speaking countries, the word for light is part of the phrasing used in labor and birth terminology. The phrase for labor is "sacar a la luz," to bring to the light. "Dar a luz" is the phrase that means "to give birth." Now is the time for us as midwives and childbirth activists to bring the whole family-centered birth movement "a la luz"—to the light. Help bring childbearing out of these most recent "dark ages" and into the light.
