Do you want to feel prepared and excited about birth?
You want to be able to look forward to your baby's birth with confidence, trusting that you will be able to cope. You might be nervous about how much labour will hurt and if you need a 'high pain threshold' (you don't). Or wondering whether it is possible to have a positive birth experience after hearing some horror stories. You wish that you could see the same person more than once as you navigate the maternity system. You're hoping that your birth partner will understand how to support you. You are a busy, clever woman and you want to work with a safe pair of hands. .
