Trust Your Body! Trust Your Baby!


In the name of technological progress, hundreds of thousands of women have been coerced into relinquishing a most cherished right–the right to give birth in a gentle, supportive environment free of medical interventions, and instead welcome their children to the world through major abdominal surgery. The physical, psychological,and cultural implications of cesarean sections are thoroughly examined. Through insightful education and an understanding that can only come from experience, Henkart shows how every woman possesses the ability to overcome the fear and uncertainty commonly associated with birthing to be able to give birth without the intervention of major surgery.
