Question 1 of 8

1. You want a natural birth. In the delivery room, you want someone who:


Believes in you 100 percent, even if she or he thinks you're crazy.

Will support your wishes and suggest comfort measures and relaxation techniques, but also provide support if you change your mind and need something more than "natural."

Tells you that's a great idea, even if he or she secretly hopes you'll get the drugs.

Is happy for you, but not so sure about seeing you in a lot of pain, so he or she won't object if you change your plans.

Suggests a wait-and-see approach.
