There are so many variables with labor and delivery that it’s important to know as much as possible before you get to that point. For instance, if your doctor asks you, will you give consent for an episiotomy? It never occurred to me until I was in the delivery room. Pregnancy, Childbirth, and the Newborn has a section to help you complete a birth plan, gives you pointers on choosing a doula, and walks you through the details of having a home birth.
Having experienced birth at home and at the hospital, I would give anything to have known all of my options before having my first baby so that I could make an informed decision that better fits our personal philosophies.
Almost any expecting mother, father or couple can find useful information in this book, and with 4.5 star ratings on Amazon, many people already have.
