This review is from: Gentle Birth, Gentle Mothering: A Doctor's Guide to Natural Childbirth and Gentle Early Parenting Choices (Paperback)
This book is so informative, includes lots of scientific studies to back its claims but still manages to be totally accessible. I found it extremely useful when writing my birth preferences. I especially like the way that she deals with possible birth complications (which do occur even if we are perfectly designed to birth our babies naturally) so that the baby can be treated in the gentlest way possible, even in less-than-ideal circumstances.
I recommend it without hesitation.
