Image of item

1st ed.

The national C-section rate is at an all-time high. Are all these C-sections necessary? Inductions seem to be the norm, but are they always needed? Today, expectant mothers are often left feeling powerless, as their instincts are replaced by drugs and routine medical procedures. This book shows that you have a choice, and you have the power to plan the kind of birth that's right for you--whether at a birth center, a hospital, or at home. Advocates of informed choice Ricki Lake and Abby Epstein inspire women to take back the birth experience, with essential advice on: positive and negative effects of epidurals, Pitocin, and other drugs and interventions; inducing vs. allowing your labor to progress naturally; the truth behind the staggering C-section rate; assembling your birth team and creating your birth plan. Also includes inspiring birth stories, including well-known personalities, such as Laila Ali and Cindy Crawford.--From publisher description.
