Product description

Review

'In the 1990s, Shelia Kitzinger set up a Birth Crisis hotline and corresponding workshops to address the concerns of women who contacted her about their difficult birth experiences.  Birth Crisis springs from their stories of distress and healing. Each chapter knits their experiences together with the author's commentary and lists ways to avoid destructive maternity care.' -  Jane Pincus, Vermont, USA

'Birth Crisis provides a thorough explanation of what constitutes a 'medicalized' birth experience and what the symptoms of PTSD are after giving birth. This book also provides women with alternatives to the medical model and provides support for women who may be experiencing trauma after giving birth....Birth Crisis does an excellent job of bringing to light a very important issue in women's health.' - Sara Martino, Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books

This is a comprehensive account of the ways that birth can be a traumatic experience in our society. Helen Sassoon, Research networker. New Digest
