“The wisdom of this work is as old as time.”—Christiane Northrup, MD, author of Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom 
For more than three decades, Heart & Hands has been a trustworthy and beloved resource for parents and professionals alike, delivering invaluable knowledge on what to expect during each stage of pregnancy, birth, and postpartum recovery. This completely revised edition includes the latest research on the microbiome, updated lab tests, vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC), and help for trauma survivors.
Aspiring and veteran midwives alike will appreciate Davis’s emphasis on non-intervention and the woman-centered birth experience, and expectant parents will find comprehensive answers to their questions about natural approaches to pregnancy, birth, and working with a midwife. Parents will also learn about the home birth process, which allows them to plan their own unique birth experience in a more personalized and intimate birthing environment. Combining time-honored teachings with the most current obstetric techniques, this essential reference empowers birthing helpers and parents to embrace the full childbearing experience.
