Pushed: The Painful Truth About Childbirth and Modern Maternity Care

Mother/Infant/Child | Books

The majority of U.S. women are not having optimal birth experiences. Women should seek out an optimal, evidence-based birth experience, and they need to know that, statistically, they are not likely to have that experience in this country unless they are proactive about it. For example, many women don’t know that several routine maternity practices in the U.S. actually hinder the natural birthing process, such as being immobilized in bed for labor and giving birth lying on your back. This book educates mothers-to-be on their options for a more fulfilling experience.
