    1- What kind of things did you do to prepare for the birth of your baby?

    2- Did you attend any special classes to prepare for your labor and delivery?

    3- Did you eat any special kinds of foods during pregnancy and after the birth of the baby?

    4-Did you have any prenatal testing such as ultrasound to assess fetal development?

    5- Was there any family member with you during the birth?

    6- At the hospital where you gave birth, was the baby allowed to stay in the same room with you?

    7- What are the things that you did after the baby born? Is there any cultural practices that you had to adhere to after your baby was born?
