Synopsis: More and more women are keen to explore their options for childbirth, and to choose the kind of birth that they feel is best for them and their babies. For many women, giving birth at home in their own surroundings has significant advantages. In this book, Sheila Kitzinger gives the reader all the information she needs to plan a birth in a setting that she can control herself, whether at home, in a birth centre or in a birthing room. She cites first-hand accounts of birth in and out of hospital.

From Library Journal: Kitzinger ( The Complete Book of Pregnancy and Childbirth , LJ 3/1/81; 1989. rev. ed.) examines alternatives to hospital births, conceding that this is not the right choice for everyone. She outlines important considerations in choosing a birth setting, then details the process of preparing for birth at home or in a birth center. She also offers information valuable to expectant parents regardless of their choice of birth setting. The book, which is quite readable and fairly well referenced, also includes a short list of birth centers and organizations that can provide further information specific to local areas. A nice addition for all popular medical collections.
