Quote on Giving Birth

Childbirth is a time when a woman's power and strength emerge full force, but it is also a vulnerable time, a time of many changes presenting opportunities for personal growth.

- Annamarie van Oploo

As you read the many and varied birth experiences of other women, you will learn that there are many variations of 'normal' natural childbirth.

You will learn from the mistakes and triumphs of others and hopefully get a more accurate idea of what giving birth could actually be like.

We've all seen ER and heard so many horror stories - and some of those are real - but as this website seeks to show, if the processes of labor and giving birth are left undisturbed, birthing is usually peaceful, gentle and uncomplicated.
