The title requires some translation: by "a safe birth," the authors mean "safe from the interference of doctors and nurses," and by "the childbirth experience you want," they mean childbirth with a minimum of interference from doctors or nurses, which they claim is the way most women want it. If you already know that's what you want, this book may seem a bracing pep talk on how to talk back to the medical establishment. However, if you're either unsure how you feel or, worse, if you actually think you'd like some medicinal pain relief during what's widely agreed to be the most painful experience in most women's lives, this book is not for you. I'm not sure how they selected the women they surveyed on birth preferences, but considering that they quoted only about 1 woman who actually wanted drugs rather than having them forced upon her by evil doctors, I have my doubts about their selection methods. In my own experience, I have yet to come upon a woman who got the sort of athletic satisfaction out of the unmitigated pain of labor that seems so common among their interviewees. Most of the women I know seem to think pain hurts, and it'd be nice to have less of it.
The authors claim that interventions by doctors (all sorts of pain medications, inducing labor, episiotomy, and especially caesarean sections) only make childbirth more dangerous for both mother and baby. This seems highly dubious to me, because far more women and babies died during childbirth before these techniques were invented. They back up all their conclusions by citing scientific studies, but neither of them is a scientist, a doctor, a nurse, a public health specialist, an epidemiologist, or a midwife, so I doubt they really have the qualification to do the kind of scientific analysis of birth technologies that they claim to be doing, and I strongly suspect them of cherry-picking studies that support their ideological convictions and ignoring evidence to the contrary.
In addition, a book written in 1992 about childbirth choices is likely to be completely outdated for women giving birth in the age of Damaged Care, I mean Managed Care. To give you a hint of the problem, while the authors mention HMOs, they feel the need to define the term. The health care world has changed, and many of the options they describe may not be options any more.

My wife and I have read this book multiple times and recommend it to everyone we know who is pregnant.
In fact the reason we came to amazon.com today was to order some more copies to hand out to our friends.

Most people know more about choices to make when buying a car than they do when having a baby. Let's
face it, which is more important! This book gives you information that will enable you to make the
best birth choices for your family. It details the choices that you can and should make BEFORE your baby's birth.
If you're already reading "What to Expect When You're Expecting"
that's great, but go one step further and find out what to expect during birth.

After a "high-tech" and eventful birth experience with my son, I found myself anxious regarding the upcoming labor and delivery of my new baby. When I began to read this book, I felt as if the authors had written it for me. It was if someone was acknowledging what I had been through before and providing me with the information and resources to place me in control of my next birthing experience. The book is based on the real experiences of real women like myself. It was often an emotional and cathartic experience just reading the book. I recommend it to anyone wanting to learn what it's like, and can be like to give birth in the United States today.

This is a super book with lots of information about the different
"controversies" in birth today. Some of the topics included are: monitoring,
cesarean, episiotomy, VBAC, doulas, and much more. They offer
practical advice about how to get information you need to make an
informed decision. A must read!

I'm pregnant with my first child, and this book did a very thorough job of explaining what to expect in the hospital, why they do the interventions they do, why these interventions might not necessarily lead to the most positive birth experience, etc. I feel more prepared now for what that might come my way during labor, thanks to this book. Anyone who claims that this book is 'unbiased', however, is sadly mistaken! The overwhelming tone of the book is 'hospitals and doctors are evil and must be destroyed'. I agree that the medical establishment intervenes too much in a natural process, but the bashing gets to be a bit much. Also, I found that much of the book's assertions are based on studies from the 1960's and 1970's...I'd like to see something a little more current. A lot can change in 30-40 years!! I still recommend the book, but I wouldn't make it the ONLY childbirth book that you pick up.

Now that I'm ten days "overdue" with my second, I realise I should have read it again. It helps ensure that women aren't badgered by medical dogma and forced into unsafe birthing situations such as induction for post-date, epidurals, lithotomy position to give birth. Reminds us that birth is natural and is easiest when we don't mess with it

I found this book in 1993 when I was pregnant with my daughter. It truly helped shape my birth experience, along with several other wonderful books including Penny Simkin's Pregnancy, Childbirth and the Newborn and the Birth Partner; Sheila Kitzinger's books, and Michel Odent's Birth Reborn. This was on the short list of books I actually purchased (versus books I checked out of the library). Well organized and well presented, this truly supports informed consent. This book is well-supported not only by the listed documentation in the book, but the majority of research I've read in the past six years as a birth professional.
Purchased this book along with 4 others to prepare for natural childbirth. I would not recommend this book. This book did not keep my attention. I would put it down & re-read The Birth Book.
