Dr. White's book is very short and basic. For more complete information on emergency childbirth (plus lots of other first aid and self medication subjects), I would get David Werner's excellent book, "Where There Is No Doctor". For a beautifully illustrated book that covers all aspects of home birth, including complications and emergency childbirth, I recommend "Heart and Hands: A Midwife's Guide to Pregnancy and Birth" by Elizabeth Davis.

Format: Paperback
You never know when you might need to pinch hit for the "professionals" and assist in the birth process. Emergency Childbirth prepares you to do just that! Emergency Childbirth walks you through the birth process from preparation to delivery. Subjects covered include how to recognize First Stage Labor, assisting with the birth in Second Stage, and receiving the placenta in Third Stage.
However, Emergency Childbirth covers not only preparations and birth for a "normal" birth, but also equips you to deal with the rare and unusual -- buttocks or legs breech births, hands first, cord first, hemorrhage, recognizing babies in danger, artificial respiration, dealing with eclampsia, and other illnesses or accidental injuries you may encounter.
Overall, Emergency Childbirth is easy to understand and use, regardless of your age or birth experience. I heartily recommend this manual for anyone who might need it in a pinch -- from expectant parents to EMT's, Fire, Police and Taxi Drivers.

Format: Paperback
There are a lot of people who may want to use this for a "How-to-guide" on birthing at home by yourself. (It isn't only useful for an "accidental" home/car/hotel/middle of nowhere/unattended birth). I'd recommend this book for anyone who thinks they'll be in this situation by accident, or on purpose. It was very informative for my husband & I. (We felt a DITY birth was better than the "care" we were getting in our state.) The index in back is helpful, because it allowed us to hurriedly flip the pages & find out "Oh! Okay... this is normal." I would recommend that the book be read before your partner (or self) goes into labor. (Along with other Emergency Childbirth information.) You more than likely won't need it. We really didn't... it relieved a lot of stress towards the end (after the baby was born), when we were waiting for the placenta to come. The only "bad" thing about it, is it tells the helper to have the woman lay on her back. Have her lay any way SHE wants to. As he even states in his book, "When in doubt, do nothing." Babies are born this way all over the world everyday. It's nice to know a Dr acknowledges this & put out a manual to help us acheive this naturally and safely.
