In Search of the Perfect Birth details the journey of Elizabeth McKeown through the births of her three children, from the first, which took place in a hospital, to the third, which took place at home, unassisted. Her middle child’s birth was an attempt at a midwife-assisted home birth, but turned into a hospital birth, and left her fearful, questioning her body’s ability to give birth.

Elizabeth’s is a story that needs to be told; One that details the experiences of so many women in “the system”

Although this is a good book for understanding that no birth no matter how well planned turns out differently. I feel the author was totally unprepared for birthing a child all three times. Thus it also presents a very skewed view of any assistance in birth, blaming her attendants when she thought she could coast through labor. They call it labor for a reason.
