Preparing for childbirth is like preparing for a marathon, creating physical and psychological endurance and filling in information and tools to use at that time. Pregnancy and Delivery, is particularly an important and subversive period in a couple’s life. This time between conception and birth is full of changes, physical and emotional, which, in addition to joy and enthusiasm, raises various questions, concerns, fears. If you want to be the protagonist of your own birth, to know what’s going on in your body during pregnancy and childbirth, and to prepare for your breastfeeding and the coming of your baby at these meetings, you will find what you ask for.
Knowledge is power and power for birth exists in every woman. Such an important period of our lives is good to be informed, to trust our body, to fight our fears, to strengthen ourselves both for this period of pregnancy, for the birth and reception of the new member, and for during the period of the litter.
