Summary

Studies show that midwife-assisted births are as safe or even safer than births with physicians--midwives have much lower C-section and complication rates and their services cost roughly half of those of obstetricians. Illustrates how certified nurse-midwives offer a more personal, holistic and comprehensive approach to birth and well-woman care than traditional OB/Gyn. Explains exactly what a midwife visit entails and outlines the midwife philosophy of highly personal, natural care. Covers hospital, birth centers and home birth options.
