The strength of a labouring woman is something which never ceases to amaze me. This is something which is often most evident in a calm, serene birthing environment (usually when women are birthing at home and are therefore in the environment in which they feel most relaxed). Often the woman will retreat completely into her own little world, focusing all her attention and energy on bringing her baby into the world whilst those of us who are privileged to witness this miracle sit and watch in quiet awe, ready to offer help, a back massage and encouraging words where needed.
