Prima Mother and Baby are looking for case studies for an article called `Birth Fears, Birth Reality'.
They are looking to talk to women who might have had fears and worries about the birth beforehand, but who went on to find their birth experience wasn't as bad as they feared.
Perhaps they'd been worried that the birth might be complicated, but in reality they had a straightforward delivery. Or perhaps they were worried they wouldn't cope with the pain, but they did! Or maybe they did have a complicated delivery, but felt they coped better than they thought they would.
As well as first-time mums, they are also looking to find a second-time mum who had a difficult birth first-time round and feared their second birth might be similar, but then they went on to have a really positive birth experience.
If you have a story to tell, your baby is less than a year old, and you would be happy to have a short phone conversation with a journalist about it, please contact the NCT press office in the first instance with your contact details: press@...
