Your Best Birth: Know All Your Options, Discover the Natural Choices and Take Back the Birth Experience (Paperback)Ricki Lake (author), Abby Epstein (author)
Paperback 272 Pages
The national C-section rate is at an all-time high of 31%. Are all of these C-sections necessary? Are some of them done simply for the convenience of doctors? Inductions seem to have become the norm. Are they always necessary? In the end, expectant mothers are often left feeling powerless, as their instincts are replaced by drugs and medically unnecessary procedures. What you are about to discover is that you have a choice, and you have the power to plan the kind of birth that's right for you-whether it be at a birth centre, hospital, or at home; and with a doula, midwife, and/or OB/GYN. In YOUR BEST BIRTH, Ricki Lake and Abby Epstein inspire women to take back the birth experience, with essential advice on: - Positive and negative effects of epidurals, Pitocin, and other drugs and interventions - Induction vs. allowing your labor to progress naturally - The truth behind America's C-section rate Packed with crucial advice from childbirth professionals, and delivered in a down-to-earth, engaging voice, YOUR BEST BIRTH is sure to renew confidence and put the control back where it belongs: with parents-to-be!
