This is a very informative book about childbirth choices that sheds real light on the standard procedures employed by doctors and hospitals. It also has the research and studies to back up it's points. It also includes a rather comprehensive list of further reading and resources.

This is a must-have book to help educate moms on all the important decisions you will need to make -- cesreans, breech babies, inducing labor, IVs, fetal monitoring, and much more.

Wonderful book on the pros and cons of birthing with interventions. Well written, completely thought out and backed up with science and lots of studies. A MUST READ for every pregnant woman.

While I knew most of the information in this book, it was refreshing to see all the studies. It made me chuckle to read half the book and see that the other half was studies she used.

Highly recommended.
