5.0 étoiles sur 5 Must-read book, with solid (research-backed) reasoning! 9 août 2006
Par Stacy Crosby - Publié sur Amazon.com
The book was published in June of 2006 and I honestly have to say that I am utterly amazed!

The author gives women the voice that they need to be heard in the delivery room, by giving them statistically-based information on when interventions are not necessary (but why they are often forced on us), and also explains the situations in which they could be necessary.

Things such as "failure to progress" (hospitals watch the clock!), routine IVs, why episiotomies should NOT be done (think of how hard it is to rip fabric, and then of how easy it is to rip after you've made a small cut!), electronic fetal monitoring (a stethoscope is just as good... and why!)... He discusses all of these things in an easy-to-understand manner.

He also talks about the differences between midwives & doctors, the importance of doulas, and also the difference between home births with midwives and hospital births with midwives (very big difference!), as well as discusses the option of a midwife-centered birth clinic which has been growing in popularity over the years.

There is also information on the 3 stages of labour, and techniques to successfully manage each of them, including various positions and styles (squatting, birthing stool, waterbirth, and more).

The author headed up many research studies into the effects of evidence-based labour/delivery care, as opposed to "common practice care" and compiled this knowledge in a fascinating book that should be a must-read for all expecting moms and their birth partners.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A great guide for having the birth you want! 14 juin 2006
Par Jamie Aramini - Publié sur Amazon.com
This book is an excellent resource for coming up with a birth plan that fits your needs and desires. A must-read for all pregnant women! Very informative, especially if you have been questioning the safety of hospital routines for you and your baby.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Good resource 17 juin 2008
Par Lisa Streeter - Publié sur Amazon.com
This is a useful book, though the author is certainly not "neutral" in her opinions. If you are hoping for a natural birth, this book will likely make you feel more confident in that decision. It is definitely anti-medical intervention.

My only complaint about the book relates the the chapter on pain management. As it's laid out, the only two options you have are 1) completely natural (position, hypnosis, aromatherapy, etc.) or 2) an epidural. I would have liked to see a little more information about other drug options. More than just that, "they are not in common use anymore."

As a soon-to-be first-time mother, I've looked to my own mother's experiences for guidance. She had 4 healthy vaginal births (all over 8 pounds, one over 10 pounds) without epidurals. However, she swears by the "wonderful" drugs she was given. She doesn't remember the name but only that it was administered through an injection in her hip.

So for me, even if the author advises against drugs for pain management, I would have appreciated some discussion of her reasons why as well as the relative flaws and merits of the non-natural alternatives to an epidural that are available.

But other than this omission (and likely I'm in the minority here), it is a very nicely written book with a lot of helpful information.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 succint and informative 5 février 2007
Par Smiley Bride - Publié sur Amazon.com
This is the best book on birth I have read so far, and I have done plenty of reading. ;-) I hadn't heard of it -- it is not on a lot of the Listmania lists here, nor does it have many reviews. My husband selected it because it seemed authoritative, with an author who is an OB and the former head of the Maternal Health section of the World Health Organization. Unlike some of the slow-going tomes out there, this packs a lot of information into digestible chunks. It is definitely "biased" in favor of a midwife-attending, out-of-hospital birth and natural alternatives to drugs, technology, and surgery. Most persuasive were the statistics comparing practices and outcomes in various developed countries -- what we take for granted as necessary in the U.S. is not the norm, and European babies thrive just fine.

Even (especially!) if you are planning a hospital birth, as I am, it is worth reading because it goes through each medical procedure ("intervention") and its benefits and risks. This made clear how one intervention can "cascade" to more, but also made clear the circumstances in which I might want certain interventions. It highlighted certain danger areas where an overly cautious caregiver might hook you up with more interventions than you want, but it didn't have a full rebuttal to how to deal with that (perhaps there is none). I thought that demanding a second opinion was not very useful because wouldn't someone else with rights at the same institution just back up the original opinion?

It also has thorough lists of questions to ask a potential provider (OB or midwife or doula) or location (hospital or birth center). The one caveat I would add is that most hospitals in the U.S., at least not where I live, will give the "right" answers to all of Dr. Wagner's questions, such as no time limits on labor, freedom to eat, etc. So don't get your heart set on WHO's ideal model, or you will be :-(.

What was unpleasant, but useful, about the book is that it forces you to think about every contingency and plan to make the worst case scenario as much in line with your wishes as possible. Not something I would have dwelt on but for this book, and probably useful preparation.

This book teaches you that you deserve the best maternal/infant care and what that care should look like (probably not what you think!) and formulate your wishes for to cover every possible complication. It also emphasizes that birth is a dynamic process and doesn't always happen in accordance with our paper plans.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The road to natural birth 25 février 2007
Par Grosch - Publié sur Amazon.com
This book with supply you with every tool possible to prepare for a calm, natural birth in a hospital. It teaches the best approach to take in a hospital with nurses and doctors. A must read for anyone who has the goal of a natural birth in a hospital. We ended up using a birth center, which does not require as many tools since natural birth is the standard in those facilities.
