Feedback reduces or enhances a stimulus. Positive feedback enhances a stimulus, but will eventually come to an end. Child birth is a good example of positive feedback. The body creates conditions that would usually be considered abnormal, but are necessary for that particular action. An example of negative feedback is how the body maintains homeostasis, body temperature, etc.
