Publisher's Summary

Natural Hospital Birth, Updated Edition shows how to apply the guidelines and tactics of natural birth in a hospital setting, where 99 percent of births take place.  

Many mothers-to-be find themselves torn between the desire for a natural childbirth with minimal medical intervention and the peace of mind offered by instant access to life-saving technology that only a hospital can provide. In Natural Hospital Birth, doula Cynthia Gabriel asserts that there is no good reason women should not be able to have both.  

Cynthia shows expectant mothers what they can do to avoid unnecessary medical interventions and how to take initiative and consciously prepare for the kind of birth they want to have. Also included are inspiring stories from other women who know firsthand that natural birth in the hospital is possible. 

With this audiobook, mothers-to-be will be equipped with the knowledge they need to ensure a satisfying hospital birth they will look back on with peace and joy.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Great Content

This book has lots of great content and gives you a LOT to think about in terms of what you want to occur at your birth and how best to communicate those wishes. I am in week 14 and have finished the book, and I plan to relisten once further into my pregnancy. I think this is a great resource to make one think about what they truly want and provide additional tips to make the day of birth go smoother (e.g. make sure your partner knows the answers to the general medical history questions). I would definitely recommend, especially for a first time mom-to-be like myself. I like to prepare for things, and this book makes me feel MUCH more prepared, even at this early stage.
