So many horror stories circulate about birth that it can be difficult to believe that labor and birth can be a beneficial experience. One great way to counter the effects of frightening stories is to hear and read empowering ones. These stories may change you because they might tell you something you didn’t know before or they might help you look at things from a different perspective than you ever had before. (Passage adapted from the introduction to the birth stories in Ina May’s Guide to Childbirth by Ina May Gaskin.)
