9780071459631: The Birth That's Right For You: A Doctor and a Doula Help You Choose and Customize the Best Birth Option to Fit Your Needs

Have the birth that’s right for you—not your mother, your sister or your best friend.

Dr. Amen Ness, doula Lisa Gould Rubin and mom Jackie Frederick-Berner believe that when it comes to the ideal birth method, there’s really only one best expert: YOU. The Birth That's Right for You helps you custom-tailor your birth experience by having you reflect on:

  • The way you imagine giving birth
  • How you cope with pain
  • What you need to feel safe and secure

Based on your answers, you will be able to create an approach that will meet your needs whether you get the epidural, chant your way to delivery in a birthing pool, take a wait and see approach to medication, or any combination in between.

In The Birth That's Right for You, you will learn how to:

  • Match yourself up to the coping strategies that best fit you
  • Take a realistic look at your expectations and let go of everyone else's
  • Assemble a labor and delivery team that supports what you want for yourself
