Reclaiming Our Ancient Wisdom is a guide for trained and practiced herbalists and midwives to better serve the women of their communities. Examines safety issues and benefits of herbal abortion; risk and efficacy considerations; criteria and protocol; herbal abortifacients, implantation inhibitors, emmenogogues, oxytocic herbs and more.


Herbal abortion has been with women since the beginning of time. It has at times been a forbidden wisdom, passed by word of mouth between midwives, herbalists, and women healers. Beginning in the 14th century and through the 17th century, performing or simply knowing how to perform an herbal abortion was a danger. Those who held this information were murdered or frightened into silence. Eventually this knowledge was erased from the memories and lives of nearly all women.
