“Optimal Care in Childbirth presents compelling evidence for the value and importance of a physiologic approach to childbirth and provides a clear, exhaustive guide for making sense of the research in the context of the current maternity care system. This long awaited book is a marvel. It is a ‘must have’ resource not just for childbirth educators, nurses, obstetricians, and women, but for hospital administrators, insurance companies, and policy makers.”
