It is the book for every woman who hopes for VBAC. In fact, many first-time cesareans could be avoided if this book were read first. It is thorough, it is compassionate. Esther Zorn, Cesarean Prevention Movement
[A] landmark book. . . . These VBAC stories are inspiring, as well as very informative about the nature of labor and current U.S. obstetric practice. Ina May Gaskin, The Birth Gazette
This is not a dry text book remote from reality, but a powerful `manual' that burns the knowledge women need in an indelible way on heart and mind. AIMS Quarterly Journal
Here for the first time are intimate stories of the VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean) experience, as told by mothers, fathers, midwives, obstetricians, labor coaches, and others whose lives have been affected by VBAC. The stories demystify in a powerful way the idea of once a cesarean, always a cesarean. By example, each story is a telling critique of birthing practices in general and the cesarean outcome in particular, as well as a primer for mothers, fathers, and professionals on the VBAC experience.
