I learned a lot from this book about all the options that are out there. There are only a few parts that I had to kind of indulge them on, and I still found it extremely informative in a way that I haven't been able to find very much of. If you ever get the chance, read the flap on the cover and you'll immediately know if it's something you'll be interested in. It addresses the rising c-section, epidural, and medical intervention rates that "often leave mothers feeling powerless as their instincts are replaced by drugs and routine medical procedures."

The book is pretty fair and doesn't badger women who've had c-sections or interventions. It's about empowering women and partners to feel free to make the educated decisions they want, even if that includes a c-section.
