Publisher's Comments

During her doctoral research, medical anthropologist Gabriel (Eastern Michigan U.) spent a year studying birth in Russia, where natural hospital birth is the norm and birth pain is honored. As a doula in Ann Arbor, supporting women in hospital birth, she has also developed insights into birth that obstetricians often lack. Drawing on these experiences--and her own as a mother of three--she offers an informative guide to help women understand the birth process, prepare for giving birth, decrease their fears, develop a birthing plan, gain support from hospital staff, and avoid unnecessary interventions. While written in particular for women interested in having a natural birth in a hospital setting, the text will also be useful for physicians, nurse-midwives, nurses, health policy makers, and hospital administrators.
