A book for all midwives and mothers to be

Many women believe that birth is painful and something you have to endure to have a baby. They tell you horror stories of fear when the hospital took control and they were left out of the cycle of drugs and last-minute surgical intervention. This book explains how you can go about preparing for a better birth. Written by two experienced midwives, it doesn?t promise a magical remedy. And it doesn?t treat all birth options and all women as if they are the same. But with the right information and an appropriate choice of place and caregiver, pregnancy and birth can be a truly momentous event. A better birth can be an event every mother can look back on with satisfaction. I recommend this well researched, clearly written and easy to follow book to you if you are contemplating pregnancy, or are already pregnant, as a guide to help get the answers you seek about pregnancy, birth and the early post birth period. I also recommend this book to all midwives and midwifery students for an important insight into and understanding into birth from women?s perspectives.
