Going into Labour
Going into labour is a natural process that occurs every second of every day all over the globe.
But, this does not mean that it is always straightforward and most women, especially first-time mums-to-be, are usually nervous in some way about what will happen. Fortunately, going into labour in the UK, in the twenty-first century, is largely safe and most childbirth situations are likely to occur without complication or threat to either the mother’s or the baby’s health.
