Opinionated and anti-medical profession,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Birth Rights: A Guide to Getting the Best Possible Care for You and Your Child (Paperback)
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.
