Anastasia, 26, is preparing to give birth for the first time. She can’t wait to meet her daughter and is also excited about going through the experience of labour and giving birth. She sees it as a privilege rather than an ordeal. Although her husband won’t be present during childbirth, Anastasia says his love and support help her immensely.

Meanwhile, 36-year-old Elena is expecting her second child. She has a daughter and is about to have a son. Elena was hoping for a C-section, but the doctors decided she can give birth naturally. Unfortunately, due to health issues, Elena won’t be able to have an epidural and will have to tough it out.
