She raises awareness as to how the birth process has become a medical condition, the effect this may have/has had on mothers and infants, and helps you realize that the mother should be the decision maker in how she brings her child into this world. She does this with little or no bias by presenting the facts and allowing the reader to draw his/her own conclusions. Most importantly, it provides you with the knowledge that there are options for birth and that you should make informed decisions about birth instead of just following the "standard procedures" that the U.S. medical profession dictates.
Indeed I did go on to have an incredibly easy, I'd even say fun, labor and delivery the second time, on November 14, 2003, despite being induced due to low amniotic fluid (I was over a week past edd too). Still no pain drugs and I was enjoying chatting with my friend and my doula between contractions all the way up to pushing. Five hours total, and just a few pushes. I may just be lucky to have easy births, but I truly believe a lot of it has to do with being knowledgeable and relaxed, which is Arms' main point.
I was able to successfully have a natural I medicated childbirth.
