Suzanne Arms has spent 40 years as a practical visionary, educating and advocating for a paradigm shift in how humans think about and the decisions we make about birthing babies and caring for the mother-baby pair from preconception on. An internationally renowned speaker, Arms is author-photojournalist of 7 groundbreaking books on pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding, new parenting and adoption. Her book on birth, Immaculate Deception (1975 & 1997) challenged the entrenched system of modern hospital-based birth and was named a Best Book of the Year by the New York Times. In the 1970s Arms co-founded one of the first modern birth centers and created and taught one the first course in the evolution of childbirth practices. Arms founded and directs the USA-based nonprofit/charity Birthing The Future(R), which has begun a global social media campaign called THE TIME IS NOW to focus attention on Birth and the Primal Period. Suzanne lives and works in Colorado.
