Synopsis

The majority of babies throughout the world are born at home and it is mainly in developed countries (and mostly in the past few decades) that going to hospital to have your baby has become the norm.



This is all set to change as more and more evidence comes to light about the positive outcomes of homebirths. With inspirational stories from women who have had successful homebirth experiences, you'll find out:



-Why women are perfectly designed to give birth

-What the evidence says about the best place to give birth

-The myths surrounding childbirth at home

-How to plan for a homebirth and what you need on the day

-What your choices of pain relief are

-What the possible risks and complications might be



Practical and reassuring, The Homebirth Handbook provides all the information you need to feel completely prepared and excited to welcome your baby in the comfort and safety of your own home.
