Obstetrician and gynecologist Magnus Murphy, MD, and journalist/advocate Pauline McDonagh Hull offer a compelling case for surgical delivery as a legitimate birth choice for informed women. By offering a wealth of medical evidence from around the world and thoughtfully countering the many objections detractors have lodged against it, the authors convincingly demonstrate that a planned cesarean birth at thirty-nine- plus weeks is a safe and often preferred alternative to a planned vaginal delivery. An indispensable guide for women, their families, and medical professionals.

"A must-read for all women."
--Dr. Jennifer R. Berman

"An excellent presentation of the complex issues surrounding maternal request cesarean delivery. . . .
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."
--Ralph W. Hale, MD, Executive vice president, American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists

"A must-read for all women. Women need to be informed with all information related to elective c-section versus vaginal birth. This book arms women with the information needed to make the choice that suits them best."
--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."
--Phil Steer, MD, frcog, Emeritus professor, Imperial College London; editor in chief, BJOG, An International Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology

"A thoroughly readable book, beautifully written and well researched. The authors offer a supportive approach with informed decision making. . . . A compelling book I can thoroughly recommend."
--Dr. Peter De Jong, Consultant obstetrician and gynecologist, University of Cape Town
