The decisions that we make about pregnancy and childbirth can shape our experiences, health and lives, as well as those of our children and families. But many of those decisions are complex, confusing and made harder by the fact that we live in a world which is filled with options and opinions. This book is designed to help the reader think through their needs so that decision making becomes less daunting. It explains the different perspectives and approaches that people take towards childbirth and tips, tools and ways of thinking that will help you find the path that's right for you.
