Summary "In her experience over the last twenty years as an obstetrician, a researcher, and a mother, Dr. Lyerly has found that there is deep confusion over what makes for a 'good birth.' Physicians and other medical personnel often focus on clinical outcomes while others focus on keeping birth 'natural.' But, as Dr. Lyerly points out, a good birth depends on deeper considerations--ones that bring meaning to birth as one of life's most memorable, emotional, and profound experiences. Transcending polarized and politicized debates that weigh down the current childbirth discussion, A Good Birth brings a new perspective to childbirth and helps women both explore and process what this life-changing event really means to them"--Book jacket.
