WELCOME!

How we welcome our children into the world reflects our highest hopes and dreams for them. How do we want to become mothers? What kind of experience will this be for ourselves, our families and our babies?  For a woman who is giving birth for the first time, and might give birth only once in her life, the events of these few hours and the choices she makes can have particular significance.”
