Why Home Birth Matters

£5.99

Natalie Meddings

2018

Published by Pinter and Martin

Natalie looks at homebirth from the perspective of asking Why go to hospital? Why disrupt the beginnings of labour to get in the car, travel and arrive at hospital - a shiny building with bright lights with people you probably don't know? She explains the shift in thought that is needed by society not to leave home to give birth.  The book also explains in good detail why sometimes there may be a need for hospital care, the practicalities of planning a homebirth and the research which now makes it clear how safe and beneficial homebirth is for most women.
