This disorganized website is a collection of other websites and articles. While there may be information of value within, it will be difficult to find as the website contains broken links for websites that are no longer in use, advertisements for products (little academic value in that), and articles with no discernible author or credibility.

Technical Remarks:

The webpage is disorganized and cluttered with advertisements.
Time spent reviewing site: 30 minutes

I explored this site for about an hour and found it quite intersting- but I love
learing about birthing alternatives besides the just having a baby in a typical
hospital room. This site can be discribed as a main site which gives a bunch of
different links for you to go check out, depending upon the topic your
researching. Some topics include: The benefits of water birth, Drugs in Labour-
what effects do they have?, Pregnancy for vegetarians, Natural nutrition during
pregnancy, and so fourth. I found the site extremely informative and helpful
since the site does direct you to websites that include pictures, and clearly
explains the topics being discussed. I feel that if a student, or a parent-to-be
wanted information on child birth, options available, breast feeding, etc. than
this site would be extremely educationally significant since there is such an
array of topics available. Being a first time user, I found this site easy to
use because the topic areas were clearly marked and highlighted, and when the
page directed me to the proper web address, it was easy to follow through and
arrive at the destination I wanted. I highly recommend this page for people
wanting to learn about child birth and all that goes along with it.

Technical Remarks:

The site was very easy to navigate through for first time users- when the page
re-directed me to the proper website for the topic I was researching, it was
clearly marked and easy to get to the right page.
