Gilgoff's acclaimed book has been completely revised, with the personal stories, historical perspective, practical advice, and warm style of the first edition updated to meet the challenges of the 90's. Through careful review of current research and personal accounts, this competent and reassuring book covers all the issues: the advantages and disadvantages of home birth and the circumstances that make hospital birth advisable; the most commonly used methods of natural childbirth; the use of drugs, episiotomy, surgical intervention; breastfeeding upon demand, and family participation; how to arrange for a home birth attendant, how to prepare the house and family, and how to plan a contingency trip to a hospital. This [book] is a friendly, gently persuasive invitation to look at the benefits of home birth, now seen from [Gilgoff's] vantage point of a decade-plus of experience.
