Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Korte, a writer and lecturer on women's health issues for over 25 years, has written this book "to show those of you who do want a VBAC [vaginal birth afer cesarean] how to get one." This volume is based on the author's published research, letters received from over 100 women who sent her their VBAC stories, and her experiences from writing about pregnancy and birth. The appendixes (not available with the review copy) include a directory of resources and organizations and the author's VBAC questionnaire. The book is written in a very readable style, with much of it in the form of a statement or question followed by answers based the author's research and responses to her questionnaire; excerpts from the letters are included as well. The considerable information Korte presents about VBAC should answer many of the questions a pregnant woman might have. This complements two older titlesNancy Cohen's Silent Knife: Vaginal Birth After Cesarean (VBAC) & Cesarean Prevention (1984) and Diana Korte and Roberta Scaer's A Good Birth, a Safe Birth: Choosing and Having the Childbirth Experience You Want (Harvard Common, 1991. 3d rev. ed.).

A bit antiquated in references but many are still applicable.
