Synopsis

The book is designed to help partners, childbirth educators, and assistants to acknowledge the woman's powers and do all that they can to assist her in the safe and most respectful way. From her vantage point as a birth attendant, Dwinell recounts the moving birth experiences of twenty different women. Thus the reader learns that there are no "right" or "wrong" ways to give birth. In fact, the author shows how satisfying it can be for women to exercise their own strength, power and choice in the birth process instead of yielding to unnecessary technological and medical interventions.
