This is a pregnancy and birth plan guide unlike any other. Beginning with pre-conception and continuing through pregnancy, birth, and postpartum, the planner guides you through the many tests and procedures that are routine in modern obstetrics. Evidence for or against each test or procedure is examined and recommendations are made for alternative options.
The planner also discusses essential questions to ask a potential provider; ways to avoid a c-section; and inside hints on how to keep your birth plan from being derailed. Throughout, you will be reassured by the calm, common-sense tone and advice of the author, who is a midwife with 25 years experience.
One Birth Sense reader commented: “Wow! Amazing book. I bought it last night & stayed up late to read the whole thing. It’s a tremendous resource and I’m so very thankful that you took the time to put it all together. As a CBE, this will be an invaluable resource for me and I think I will add it to my “required reading” list for my clients. I’m re-reading it again today. Just fabulous! Thank you thank you thank you!!!!!”
