Conclusion

Pregnancy and birth are exciting events in the life of a woman and her family. We hope that the material we have provided in this manual will help health personnel to have a better understanding of what the prepared childbirth experience is like and that they, in turn, can communicate their enthusiasm and knowledge to expectant parents .

This book is only a beginning and we have, by no means, covered the entire subject of prepared childbirth. We have tried to include the basic information, hoping to encourage further in depth reading and preparation.
