"There is a secret in our culture, it's not that birth is painful. It's that women are strong." - Laura Stavoe Harm

Doula: a person trained to provide advice, information, emotional support, and physical comfort to a mother before, during, and just after childbirth

“When I say painless, please understand, I don’t mean you will not feel anything. What you will feel is a lot of pressure; you will feel the might of creation move through you. Pain, however, is associated with something gone wrong. Childbirth is a lot of hard work, and the sensations that accompany it are very strong, but there is nothing wrong with labor.” ~Giuditta Tornetta

"Giving birth should be your greatest accomplishment, not your greatest fear." - Jane Weideman
