For most couples today the birth of a child is an experience that will happen only once or twice and should be one of the most amazing and memorable moments to be cherished forever. The birth of a child brings many new and wonderful experiences to your life and having a positive and rewarding birth experience is the beginning of your new life as parents. There are many negative stories and fear of birth in our culture.  Knowledge is an essential part of your preparation for this life-changing event.
