    VERY INFORMATIVE - A MUST HAVE

    I am a doula so I am always looking for books that my clients can use as a reference. This book is amazingly informative and in my opinion accurate.
    It explains everything you need to know in regards to writing a birth plan. It goes over the facts that are so important and stresses the idea that every birth takes it's own road with many possible outcomes. Excellent for preparing parents-to-be for any of the possible issues that can and will arise and how to handle them in a calm and tactful way. A must have for any one who wants to write a well organized and informed birth plam.
