Everybody wants to know how long labour will last. The answer is maybe around 20 hours. But it can be shorter. Or longer.
How do you know if it's started? There's a sure sign; regular contractions. When the contractions get as frequent as three in ten minutes, it could be time to go.
Are you feeling anxious? Or just plain frightened when you think about giving birth? You're not the only one. But you should share your concerns with your midwife.
It's over. The birth is over. Your baby is lying in your arms and you're probably counting his or her fingers and toes, examining your precious bundle from head to toe. Congratulations, you're now a mother.
Chances are the only thing you know about childbirth is that it hurts. And that's enough to scare anybody. One way of dealing with your worry is by getting informed.
You can ease birth pain and help the birthing process by moving a bit and switching between different positions.
If your baby is in a breech position, your doctor will try to turn them around. But there are also things you can try at home.
Caesarean sections, or c-sections, can either be planned or carried out as an emergency procedure when a delivery doesn't go as planned.
