Summary
This book is an authoritative guide to natural childbirth and postpartum parenting options. The author speaks to a new generation of parents who are concerned about the medicalization of childbirth and want current and science-based information about alternatives. She approaches the question of how a woman and baby might have the most fulfilling birth experience with respect for the wisdom of both medical science and the human body. Using current medical and epidemiological research plus women's experiences, she demonstrates that what she calls "undisturbed birth" is almost always healthier and safer than high-technology approaches to birth
