This is one birth narrative excerpted and expanded from 1997 ethnographic research on childbirth traditions in Nyuh Kuning, Gianyar Regency, Bali, Indonesia. The research was conducted while the author provided volunteer midwifery care through Yayasan Bumi Sehat, a Non-Governmental Organization that provides free culturally sensitive maternal-child health care. This narrative exemplifies some indigenous birth practices from Bali’s traditional Holy Lontar Scrolls which are intended to provide safe physical and spiritual passage during childbirth. Bali Hindu Dharma is a centuries old religious tradition which places high value on families, children and their gods. Many core values of the culture are expressed through rites and traditions during the perinatal period.
