Caption

Childbirth. A woman in the final stages of a natural home birth, with the head of her baby emerging. The woman is leaning on her partner for support and performing breathing exercises to relieve the pain. A midwife wearing sterile gloves places her palm under the baby's emerging head to lend support. Natural childbirth involves the avoidance of unnecessary medical intervention during birth. This means that relaxation techniques are used to cope with pain, minimising the use of drugs during labour. Couples attend classes some months before the birth to learn these techniques. Photographed in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
