Two great systems of human development, Tibetan Vajrayana Buddhism and the Toltec lineages of Mexico, offer inspiring models of the human body, with remarkable implications for childbirth today.

By new model I mean the use of two existing models of the human body applied to childbirth for the first time. One model comes from the Tibetan Vajrayana Buddhist lineages and the other comes from the Toltec lineages of Mexico.
