  1. interesting discussion on where and how to give birth. It is so governed on where you find your comfort zone, as we are all different which is testament to the different experiences and desires expressed. The main thing is about giving people the choice


    1. Absolutely. It’s all about what feels right for the individual. There are pros and cons with every option but if people are well informed then at least they can make the right decision for themselves.
