5.0 out of 5 stars REALLY the best book about pregnancy, childbirth and the early months that I have ever read., 20 Jan. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Misconceptions: Truth, Lies and the Unexpected on the Journey to Motherhood (Paperback)
I was loaned this book by a midwife friend of mine and have since bought five copies for friends who are expecting. I think that it's more vital for American readers because the hospital pregnancy and childbirth experience is far worse than it is in Europe.
Having said that, there is so much that expectant parents the world-over aren't informed about, from the safety and options relating to home and hospital births, to what to expect as new parents. It's not a fluffy book that will tell you "You go to the hospital and lie down, while we take all your pain away. THEN, you have a beautiful baby which you'll instantly fall in love with" happy ending happy ending....
It's a true, sometimes brutal, very well-researched book about what you really can expect when you're expecting. You come away with a good knowledge about what your and your baby's rights are, How to go about having the birth experience that is right for you AND, what to expect from yourself, your baby, your partner, friends, the medical community and so on after the baby comes along.

I really do believe every expectant parent should read this book, home birth, hospital birth or somewhere in between.
