Format: Paperback
Well written, concise and precise with a good 'pros and cons' analysis of routine procedures offered in hospitals. This book enabled me to make well informed decisions about my pregnancy and my labour right down to the last minute of my birth experience! Don't leave it to your midwife to explain things to you; having a baby is the most important time of your life and it's up to you to make sure that decisions made are right for you and your baby rather than simply being done according to 'hospital protocol'. Easy to understand, it will give you confidence.

3 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Molly Pop on 22 Jan. 2005
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
i thought that this book would lay out the facts concerning a womans rights when having a baby, however I found many comments in this book to be alarming and reactionary. Although some of the information is useful the author comes across as being very anti the medical proffession. If this is your first baby this book may scare you off hospitals for life. Much of it contradicted my experiences when having my first baby. Women need to be empowered so that they can make their own decisions but they also need to work with the medical profession, this book appears to take a negative view about all aspects of medical care throught pregnancy and labour.I was dissapointed with the biased view of this book and found many of the statistics and quotes to be unsourced.
