You can read it in it's entirity at the above link. Her is a brief excerpt:
"Not all women will hula hoop or do anything like it in labor, but most women when supported by a caring midwife and in an environment they feel safe in will be able to be more relaxed and work with their body well, and even be able to enjoy their labor. Yes, it is possible to enjoy your labor and birth."
