The excitement far outweighs the fear
Find One Born Every Minute and the birthing stories of well-meaning friends are akin to the scariest of horror films? Before pregnancy the thought of childbirth can be enough to bring even the bravest out in cold sweats, involuntary judders and waves of nausea.
However, this completely ignores the fact that you will be so overwhelmingly excited about meeting the little wriggling lump that has grown so slowly in your stomach for the previous 280 days. Those 'with child' are adamant that the terror pales, perhaps not into total insignificance, but into something much more manageable. The birthing process is, after all, the first step to meeting your beautiful baby.
