Designed to encourage collaboration between you and your caregivers, this essential resource includes information on-

o How midwives and physicians differ in their training and approaches during labour o What to expect when delivering in a hospital, in a birthing centre, or at home o How to select an advocate to ensure your wishes are honoured by your caregiver o The natural stages of labour in a problem-free birth o Explanations of various medical or surgical interventions - and the potential complications and benefits of each o Natural alternatives to drugs, technology, and surgery o The safest labouring practices.
