Natural childbirth. A midwife listens to the heartbeat of an unborn child during labour. She is using a hand-held heartbeat monitor placed on the mother's stomach. The woman in labour is lying on her back performing breathing exercises with her partner attempting to comfort her. Natural childbirth involves the use of relaxation techniques to cope with pain and thereby minimise the use of drugs during labour. Couples attend classes some months before the birth to learn these techniques. Photographed in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
