I read this book with a growing sense of anger as I discovered just how unneccessary and damaging modern western childbirth practices are. Why we still blindly do the same unnatural things to women over and over again is beyond me! Forceps, opiates, stirrips, none of these things have a place in childbirth. More women would enjoy giving birth if they read this, and even more if it was compulsory reading for all maternity staff!
It gave me the confidence to insist on doing things my way and as a result I had a beautiful natural homebirth.
