Are you pregnant and wondering about childbirth? Make sure you read our birth story round-up

For many pregnant women, birth can be the big unknown. And despite popular birth programmes like One Born Every Minute, the big focus on labour in childbirth classes and the stories from all the people you know, it can be hard to imagine what it will actually be like.

For our next post in Midwife Month, we round-up all the birth stories we've covered in recent years. And while every labour has a different set of circumstances ranging from the place you give birth through to your own medical history, these might give you an idea of what women experienced when it comes to different types of births.

From home births to caesarian sections and inductions, with singletons and twins, here's our birth story round-up from all of our bloggers.
