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. The overwhelming majority of women want to give birth naturally. Yet they want to do it in a hospital setting, where technology and medical expertise make them feel safe. Paradoxically, it is precisely this technology and expertise that make natural birth a rare occurrence in most hospitals. In The Birth Conspiracy, Rivka Cymbalist draws upon her experience at hundreds of births to provide an answer to the question of how women can give birth naturally in hospitals. The key to this answer is the doula. Put simply, a doula is someone who accompanies a woman through pregnancy, labor and the birth of her child. But there’s much more to the doula, and this comprehensive book provides a ground-breaking re invention of the role of the humble birth companion. In the emotionally and ideologically charged world of childbirth, Rivka Cymbalist emerges as a down-to-earth, non-judgmental voice for women who are overwhelmed by choices and opinions.
