The Birth Conspiracy is a comprehensive guide for women and their partners, for doulas, and for anyone who is interested in the process of birth. It provides women with a unique opportunity to transcend the pushing and pulling of ideologies in the birthing world and it gently guides and educates women about the birth process and about their options in the hospital and at home.
