 Shortly before Daniel was due, my daughter and I visited the hospital, feeling anxious and filled with apprehension.  On the maternity ward, we spent almost an hour with the midwife who would be with her throughout and after the birth. The whole procedure was explained, questions answered and we both came away feeling much happier and reassured."
