The authors have addressed the most common and most debated pros and cons in such detail as to allow the individual patient and her physician to make a truly informed decision."

--Dr. Jennifer R. Berman, Urologist and sexual health expert, Berman Women's Wellness Center
"As a global maternal health advocate, I hope that all women will someday have more birth options to choose from--and that once a woman has had access to information about her options and makes an informed decision about her birth, the rest of us will stand behind her to support that choice."
--Christy Turlington Burns, Director/producer No Woman, No Cry; founder, Every Mother Counts
"At last a sensible and 'easy-to-read' book about the pros and cons of cesarean at the mother's request. It reviews the scientific evidence thoroughly enough to satisfy professionals but also explains it in straightforward language for the nonmedical reader."
