This is a guide for prospective mothers. In 1989, the authors, a family doctor and a community midwife, decided to change the way in which their antenatal clinic was run. Expectant mothers were involved in the decision-making process and allowed to make choices about their treatment. The results of this approach have led to far fewer caesareans than the national average, fewer problems with episiotomies and perineal tears, more normal births and more breast feeding. Developments in Government policy over the last few years mean that women are now able to make far more choices about how they want to be treated during pregnancy. With the aid of insights gained from the experiences of Dr Thorley's clinic, this book should help prospective mothers decide what's right for them as an individual. They should discover when the scientific medical approach can be safely ignored and when more "natural" approaches could be appropriate. Dr Kevin Thorley is the author of "Where Do Babies Come From?" and "What Makes You Ill?".show more
