Birth Stories

Birth stories have a lasting impact on expectant mothers. The purpose of sharing birth stories, is to recognize the influence of birth stories as a key component of informal communication of knowledge about childbirth for expectant mothers. Without exception, knowledge of childbirth has been a persistent measure of a feminine, woman-to-woman legacy. For most expectant mothers, this traditional communication has been an influential, primary way to learn about giving birth.
