Birth is something that should be looked forward to with excitement, not fear. When women let go of all the stories and expectations that have been repeated to them most of their lives, and start asking questions about their pregnancy and birth as to why, when and how, and after getting the answers to these questions, they neede to ask, "what are my options?
Today, women are taking responsibility for creating the kind of birth they want.
