Overview

This book challenges America's traditional hospital based birth system, the system which has placed the United States at the bottom of the list of industrialized nations with regard to healthy babies and healthy mothers. Dr. Eisenstein explains that birth, for the majority of women, may even be safer without the routine hospital procedures: electronic fetal monitoring, episitomy, iv's, epidurals, etc.

As I see it there is one major reason to choose home birth for your family. It will change so many other aspects for your life for the positive and affect so many decisions that you make. Childbirth at home is an event which strengthens all those who are privileged to experience it. It empowers the participants with knowledge that they can give birth and enjoy it!!

Dr Eisenstein provides the scientific facts why you should have your next baby at home. Many of the countries with the lowest infant and maternal mortality all have large homebirth services. I would recommend this book for anyone considering a homebirth, or who have to convince their friends or relatives of the safety of homebirth.

This book was very informative. Dr. Eisenstein delivered all three of my children at home. Having my babies at home was an empowering experience that allowed me to be in control through out the whole deliver process.If you have ever considered having your baby at home this is the book you want to read.
