Expectant parents have told me.....
"Being listened-to is a huge priority for me. Particularly as I know most days healthcare staff are under-pressure and frequently under-staffed"
"Knowing my partner will at my side during labour is a relief. Though I am conscious he/ she will need some support and reassurance also"
"Thinking back on my first birth I began to wonder why didn't I ask more questions. I now understand the saying 'if you don't know your options you haven't got any'".
