Recommended by Experts & Loved by Parents

Parents love this book because it puts them in control by explaining a wide range of options, information, and questions to ask, so parents can find what works best for their health situation, personal goals, and priorities.

Experts love this book because it’s based on the latest medical research and recommendations from leading health organizations.  It’s practical – rooted in the real-life experiences of new families.  The five authors bring a combined total of 150 years experience working with expectant and new families as educators, nurses, counselors, doulas, physical therapists, and lactation consultants.  They have attended hundreds of births, heard thousands of birth stories, and assisted innumerable new parents in adapting to their new lives.  Not only that, the authors have a combined total of 12 children and 12 grandchildren.  All of this experience allows them to write with compassion, understanding, and wisdom based on what really works in the real-world of parenting.

-Marjorie Greenfield, MD; author of The Working Woman’s Pregnancy Book
“Women can only make informed choices when they’re able to get comprehensive information on the many decisions that come up during pregnancy, labor, birth, and the postpartum period.  This book provides such information.  I heartily recommend it to all pregnant women!”
-Ina May Gaskin, author of Ina May’s guide to Childbirth, Ina May’s guide to Breastfeeding, and Spiritual Midwifery
“Current research, wisdom, and women’s voices together create the most comprehensive book on understanding your options.  It will educate, inspire, and nurture you to make informed decisions as you welcome your baby into the world.”
