Dr. Anne Lyerly, OB/GYN, professor, bioethicist, and mother of four, knows firsthand that there are many important elements to a “good” birth that often get overlooked. Her three-year study of a diverse group of mothers revealed universal needs, like the importance of feeling connected, safe, and respected.
A Good Birth gives voice to the complete experience of childbirth, helping both women and their healthcare providers develop strategies to address the emotional and physical needs of the mother, going beyond standard birth plans and conversations. Transcending the “medical” versus “natural” childbirth debate, A Good Birth paves the entryway to motherhood, turning our attention to the deeper and more important question of what truly makes for the best birth.
