options for pain relief during labor and birth. It has
accurate information, personal comments on subjects such as:
epidural anesthesia, positioning, TENS, accupressure,
support and much, much more! A must read for every expectant
I found this book extremely helpful because it gave a lot of great, practical suggestions for non-drug relief -- relaxation exercises, TENS units, etc. -- but also presented information about the drug options. I felt like I was getting a lot of facts without a lot of ideology/propaganda, and this is a loaded enough issue that I consider that like a breath of fresh air.
