Giving birth is an exciting, emotional, and uncertain event. We've partnered with The Mother Baby Center, a partnership of Allina Health and Children's Minnesota, to help make sure expectant moms are informed and prepared for this magic moment!

Here are nine ways to prepare for a safe and healthy entrance for your little one — and for you.
