Symonds (anthropology, Brown U.) went to a Hmong village in Thailand in the late 1980s to study childbearing practices. She discusses Hmong cosmology as a balance of opposites; mothers, daughters and wives; birth as the journey to the land of light; death as the journey to the land of darkness; and power, gender, and the cycle of life.
