I wish to express my sincere gratitude to all my clients and their families without whom these stories would not exist. Whether their story is included in this book or not, I feel privileged to have accompanied these women on their journey to motherhood. I have witnessed their joy, their pride, their challenges and their accomplishment in bringing new life into the world. Each birth I attend deepens my admiration for the strength of the human spirit in general and the awe-inspiring power of maternal love.
