Childbirth Education 101 (my experience)

To know or not to know, that is the question. Do you want to know that you can have a “home labor” or a “hospital labor”—and they can go on for 6-24+ hours? Do you want to know what an actual birth really looks like? Do you want to know what environment you will be [...]
