I found this book - excellent! My midwife gave me no choices about birth options and when i went to the NCT class the lady suggested this book! It really opened my eyes to the choices we have and all the options! I found it very helpful and also found it easier to explain the options to my Husband! I would definately say a must read if you are pregnant with your first child and would like to hear about other means of giving birth rather than just in a hospital!
