water birth, home birth, birth centre birth, vaginal birth,
c-section birth, quick birth, birth plan out the window birth,
surprise birth, monitored birth, stirrups birth, hypno birth...
Birth comes in all shapes and sizes as do mothers, fathers and babies.
Be kind to yourself and prepare to deal with your birth, not a prescriptive birth, and revel in the fact that absolutely no-one else in the world will ever experience exactly your birth again.
How many truly unique experiences are left these days?
