If you are considering a home birth, get this book and take an infant CPR class. Even if you plan on doing a hospital birth, this book is worthwhile. Why? because it is nice having the peace of mind to know how to handle problems yourself. It is the responsible adult thing to do. Chances are, you will not need the information presented in this book because natural births have fewer complications. However, it is good material to know.
Nevertheless, this is easy enough to pass over and certainly doesn't make this book worth passing up. If you want straightforward information on what to do in even some unusual situations, this is the book to buy. It is also reassuringly slim - meaning there really isn't all that much to cover in the way of things that can go wrong. It also has a quick reference section at the back which makes it very easy to find the information you need quickly, if the need arises.
I have read many natural birth books. This is my favorite. It is short, to the point, and packed with information. Not too much, not too little, just right.
