About this product
- DescriptionDrawing on her landmark study involving more than one hundred mothers, a rewned ob-gyn shares the secrets to a good birth. Most doctors think of a good birth only in terms of medical success. But Dr. Anne Lyerly kws firsthand that many important elements are often overlooked. Her three-year study of a diverse group of moms explored what matters most to women during childbirth. The results, presented to the public for the first time in A Good Birth, show what really matters goes beyond the clinical outcome or even the usual questions of hospital versus birthing center, and reveal universal needs of women, like the importance of feeling connected, safe, and respected. The book's wisdom is drawn from in-depth interviews with women with a wide variety of backgrounds and experiences, and whose birth stories range from quick and simple to complicated and frightening. Describing what went well, what didn't, and what they'd do differently next time, these mothers give voice to the complete experience of childbirth, helping both women and their healthcare providers develop strategies to address the emotional needs of the mother, going beyond the standard birth plans and conversations. Transcending the medical versus natural childbirth debate, A Good Birth turns our attention to the crucial question of what makes the best birth possible.
