Birth at Home - Sheila Kitzinger

Condition: Very Good - in Very Good DJ. Price Clipped. Previous owners inscription to ffep.

Illustrated with B&W photographs and tables. The author believes that couples should be able to choose where they would like their baby to be born and that provision for home birth should be a vital part of the health services. She explains the advantages of having a baby at home, and how to arrange this, and also describes the risks which make birth at home a bad choice for some expectant mothers and their babies whereas it is a splendid one for others. She examines carefully the way in which a woman can prepare for the happy experience of birth by sensible living and diet during pregnancy.
