There has probably never been a safer time as a woman to give birth to a baby, yet the process of birth is possibly less well understood by individual women who are about to give birth. While we women sometimes tell the terrors of a difficult birth, count stitches, compare hours spent in labour, are we ever able to share techniques or positives that will make a 'normal' birth possible for other women we know? It was a rather terrifying dilemma that faced Epidemiologist from the University of Western Sydney Dr Kate Levett and led to a research project into complimentary therapies and their role in the birth process.
