Here’s the truth: Childbirth is not only a physiologic phenomenon, but a cultural/sociological experience. So before you walk onto the Labor Floor, ask yourself:

  • Where/how did you first learn about how a baby is born? What do you know about your own birth?
  • Who (family member, friends, healthcare provider) or what (your medical training, book, television show, movie) has influenced your perception of labor? What birth stories come to your mind first?
  • Is there such a thing as “good” pain? If you are an athlete, have you ever sought out physical discomfort? Why?
  • Have you ever been in pain? How did you deal with it?
  • What do you think is the role of the healthcare provider in birth?
