Empowering yourself with education and support for birth helps build confidence in your ability to give birth. Education allows you to be an active participant on your journey into motherhood. It helps lead to higher rates of satisfaction of your birthing experience and a reduction in fear and anxiety. It is also associated with higher rates of vaginal birth.
