I enjoyed this course a lot. I actually found myself crying through the reading.

This was a great article! It helped me to see where I might need to change a few things in the way I teach about fear in my classes. It also gave me ideas on how to help women gain more confidence from my classes.

This isn't a review; I'm just unable to contact Abbie Davis. Neither link works for me.
You should probably review test question #5. In the article it states that intense fear is experienced by 6-10% of women, and moderate to intense by 17%. None of your choices reflect that information. I would guess that moderate to intense is the 17%...so, 20% is the closest. Oh, wait. did it say 1 in 20, or 20%? Maybe that was it...you converted the percentage to a ratio in the answer. Sneaky. Not nice, if that's the case.
Still, I liked the paper very much.

I would like to...

In this article, originally presented as a keynote address in 2005 at the Lamaze International Annual Conference, McGrath discusses fear during pregnancy and birth and presents ways in which the childbirth educator can acknowledge and accept women’s fears, and help find the courage they need to give birth.

Increasing the confidence of my students is a top priority for my Lamaze class. I appreciate the realistic tips and suggestions in this article.

Put words to what I already knew, without realizing I knew it. Relates to many life experiences, not just birth.

This paper is well written, organized, an appropriate length and inspirational.
