Optimal Care in Childbirth free pdf What practices and policies best promote safe, healthy, satisfying labor and birth? What harms do routine or frequent use of tests, procedures, and restrictions introduce? What nonmedical factors drive the current maternity care system? Meticulously documented, Optimal Care in Childbirth: The Case for a Physiologic Approach pulls back the curtain on medical-model management of childbirth. Written for those who want to practice according to the best evidence, assist women in making informed decisions, or advocate for maternity care reforms, Optimal Care in Childbirth provides an in-depth analysis of the evidence basis for physiologic care as the standard of care. The book examines: - why the research shows so little benefit for physiologic care and so little harm from medical-model management - what's behind the cesarean epidemic - what the research establishes as optimal care for initiating labor, facilitating labor progress, guarding maternal and fetal safety, birthing the baby, and promoting safety for mother and baby after the birth - the true, quantified risks of primary cesarean surgery, planned VBAC versus elective repeat cesarean, instrumental vaginal delivery, and regional analgesia - how the organization of the maternity care system adversely impacts care outcomes

About Henci Goer

Henci Goer, award-winning medical writer and internationally known speaker, has made it her life's work to analyze and synthesize the maternity care research in order to determine what constitutes safe, effective, satisfying care in childbirth. An independent scholar, she has become an acknowledged expert on evidence-based maternity care. Her first book, Obstetric Myths Versus Research Realities, to which this book is the successor, was a valued resource for childbirth professionals. Wanting to give pregnant women and their families the same access to the research evidence and therefore the ability to make informed decisions about their care, she followed it with The Thinking Woman's Guide to a Better Birth. Over the years, she has written consumer education pamphlets and numerous articles for trade, consumer, and academic periodicals. She served as project director and participated as an Expert Work Group member on the document, "Evidence Basis for the Ten Steps of Mother-Friendly Care" on behalf of the Coalition for Improvement in Maternity Services. Currently, she is a resident expert on Lamaze International's website where she moderates the "Ask Henci" forum and appears as a regular guest blogger on Science
