Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
These two books answer many of the questions pregnant women are likely to ask about the choices facing them. They give detailed information about prenatal care and childbirth, often focusing on possible effects on the baby. Both urge women to make informed choices in their pregnancies rather than unquestioningly accept decisions made by others. Kitzinger, a leading childbirth educator and author, is herself the mother of five daughters. Her tone is especially appealing to women because of her understanding of the emotions surrounding pregnancy and childbirth. Kitzinger argues that medical intervention often is not necessary, but her attitude is not dogmatic. Lauersen, an obstetrician, presents a more conventional approach that includes close attention by a physician and fuller use of modern medical practices. But he believes in giving patients lots of information and a wide range of options. He covers subjects not addressed in other books, such as the safety of airport scanners, as well as pre-pregnancy considerations, such as fertility and pregnancy over 35. Both these books are highly recommended. Barbara Carroll, M.L.S., Eau Claire, Wis.
