Before we were conceived, we existed in part as an egg in our mother's ovary. All eggs a woman will ever carry form in her ovaries while she is a four-month-old fetus in the womb of her mother. This means our cellular life as an egg begins the womb of our grandmother. Each of us spent five months in our grandmother's womb and she in turn within the womb of her grandmother. We vibrate to the rhythms of our mother's blood before she herself is born. And this pulse is the thread of blood that runs all the way back through the grandmothers to the first mother. We all share the blood of the first mother—we are truly children of one blood. Men cannot convey this continuity of cellular energy to their sperm. The father imparts not the imprint of a lifetime but only the fleeting energy of a few weeks. Man's nature is in many metaphorical ways a quick rise and fall—the vanishing and resurrecting energy reflected in so many the of the ancient male gods. —When The Drummers Were Women, Layne Redmond Birthing
