520    "Drawing on a landmark study involving more than one 
       hundred pregnant women and mothers, a renowned OB/GYN 
       synthesizes the secrets to a good birth medically and 
       emotionally. Most doctors are trained to think of a "good"
       birth only in terms of its medical success. But Dr. Anne 
       Lyerly knows firsthand that there are many other important
       elements that often get overlooked. Her three-year study 
       of a diverse group of over one hundred expectant moms 
       asked what matters most to women during childbirth. The 
       results, presented to the public for the first time in A 
       Good Birth, show what really matters goes beyond the 
       clinical outcome or even the usual questions of hospital 
       versus birthing center, and reveal universal needs of 
       women, like the importance of feeling connected, safe, and
       respected. Bringing a new perspective to childbirth, the 
       book's wisdom is drawn from in-depth interviews with women
       with a wide variety of backgrounds and experiences, and 
       whose birth stories range from quick and simple to 
       complicated and frightening. Describing what went well, 
       what didn't, and what they'd do differently next time, 
       these mothers give voice to the complete experience of 
       childbirth, helping both women and their healthcare 
       providers develop strategies to address the emotional 
       needs of the mother, going beyond the standard birth plans
       and conversations. Transcending the "medical" versus 
       "natural" childbirth debate, A Good Birth paves the 
       entryway to motherhood, turning our attention to the 
       deeper and more important question of what truly makes for
       the best birth possible"--|cProvided by publisher. 
520    "Based on the author's landmark study in which she 
       interviewed more than one hundred women about their 
       childbirth experiences, this book provides narrative and 
       information about how to make any birth a positive event"-
