Gregg Lahood PhD is an independent anthropological researcher and transpersonal gestalt psychotherapist. His interests include the transpersonal, spiritual, evolutionary and perinatal dimensions of childbirth. He has interviewed over 100 women in Australia and New Zealand and written and about the unique woman centered participatory events that women can participate in during childbirth in dozen articles on childbirth and transperspersonal psychology. Gregg's work suggests that women's spiritual events in childbirth are a valid but overlooked dimension in childbirth and psychology. He has developed Birth Centered Healing which combats harmful technocratic ritual wounding at childbirth with a healing counter ritual.
