Gentle Birth Choices
by Barbara Harper, R.N.

$19.95 - Softcover Book - 302 pages - and 60 minute DVD

"Should I give birth at home, in a birth center, or in a hospital? Should I see a midwife or an obstetrician for prenatal care? What approach to pain relief should I use during labor? How does a waterbirth work?"

Expectant parents are faced with a daunting array of choices to make about prenatal care, labor, and birth. InGentle Birth Choices Barbara Harper, renowned childbirth advocate, nurse, midwife, and mother of three, explains all the available choices and shows how to plan a truly meaningful, family-centered birth experience. She dispels the medical myths that so often shift control of birth away from women and reimagines birth without fear or violence and with minimal pain. Harper reveals the abundant range of gentle birth approaches, including:

  • giving birth in an independent birth center, at home, or in a hospital birthing room
  • finding a primary caregiver who shares your philosophy of birth
  • deciding how to best use current technologies

She also provides practical advice for couples wishing to explore options such as hiring a doula or laboring in water to avoid the unwanted effects of drugs and epidurals.

Includes a 60-minute DVD, blending interviews with midwives and physicians with footage of six different birth experiences—including a home birth, waterbirths, vaginal birth after a prior Cesarean section, and birth with other children present.
