As an OB/GYN, Dr. Allison Hill has delivered thousands of babies; as a mom, she's given birth to her own two children. Hill has a unique perspective on the many questions moms have surrounding pregnancy and childbirth-especially when it comes to "going natural." Drawing on her twenty years of expertise as well as current medical data, she weighs the pros and cons of the range of options available-hospital or birthing center; MD or midwife. Covering everything from understanding a doctor's bias to medical interventions (what's necessary-and what's not) to home births, Hill debunks common myths and provides insight into hot-button issues and a keen look into why doctors do what they do. Your Pregnancy, Your Way helps parents-to-be achieve a safe and healthy delivery.

For more than a decade Deborah Cooper has provided active, shared care and support for women through their pregnancies, births and beyond. As a guide, supporter and health worker Deborah understands only too well that each birth is as unique as the children themselves.
