Birthing Resources- Women Writer needed- CANADA
ANSWER THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS AS A CANADIAN CITIZEN LIVING IN MISSISSAUGA OR TORONTO.

Today midwifery along with numerous variations in childbirth are available depending upon where you live.

This is contrary to many places throughout the world (eg. England, Holland, New Zealand).
