When you find out you're pregnant, you’re faced with emotions – excitement, happiness and fear, to name a few.
And throughout your pregnancy, you’re faced with decisions – natural birth, using pain medication, hospitals, C-sections.
But most of us don’t fully understand our options, and human nature pushes us to go with the crowd. And currently, most of the crowd chooses an OB/GYN and subdues their fears with the promise of pain medication.
