Product description


," . . an unflinching examination of the technological paradigm that erroneously defines birth as a biological event only."-Elizabeth Davis, B.A., C.M. author of Heart & Hands: A Midwife's Guide to Pregnancy and Birth

"This book has both an authoritative feel and a comfortable, personal style. It's written from the trenches and will be a good resource for parents-to-be, educators, and health workers."-Suzanne Arms consumer advocate and author/photographer of Immaculate Deception II


Henkart and her collaborators inform women about the current realities of childbirth in America. They provide the reader with facts, figures, cesarean prevention techniques, and alternative approaches to the agressive routines used by the medical profession today. The technology that "saves" many mothers and babies in childbirth is the same technology that robs many women of their right to birth naturally. Consequently, of the one million cesarean sections that will be performed in America next year, over half will be unnecessary. Women deserve to be informed about the realities of childbirth. This book argues that they deserve to be encouraged to take responsibility for themselves and to trust the miracle of birth. It also claims that it is through their conscious, educated choices that our children will be allowed a peaceful and natural beginning in life.
