Invites the reader to examine their views on the act of childbirth

Proactive Support of Labor: The Challenge of Normal Childbirth is one of a select few publications aimed at professionals engaged in hospital-based obstetric care that invites the reader to examine their views on the act of childbirth.  This does not mean that there is a lack of publication in the areas of midwifery or any number of other philosophies defining what a “normal” or “natural” childbirth experience should entail.
