Publisher's Summary

One in three births is traumatic.

It doesn’t have to be that way.

Rebecca planned to give birth at the hospital affiliated with her university, where she was an award-winning nurse researcher finishing her doctoral degree. But hospital practices and policies that were more than 20 years out of date left her with complications that seemed preventable. Worst for Rebecca, her healthy baby was whisked off to a nursery right away. She spent the first few hours after birth begging to see her own baby!

A few years later and pregnant again, Rebecca put her research skills to work and examined the hard evidence on what went wrong with her first childbirth experience.

She discovered shocking truths that not only impact millions of families every year, but would change the entire course of her life.

Embark on a journey with Rebecca as she exposes the stark realities of institutional care during childbirth and reveals inspirational solutions for parents and professionals alike.

Enlightening and empowering read

I found this book to be extremely informative and inspiring as a first time mother-to-be, but as the author says, this book and the information it contains is relevant to everyone, as we all experience birth. Could not recommend more highly.

Inspired and encouraged

I am a new doula and was thankful to find Evidence Based Birth as a resource because there is so much controversy in the field. I had been making use of these resources but now to have the story behind it truly inspires me. I feel like I have resources and a community to create the change I want to see in the world. Thanks to you Rebecca, your family and your whole team for all of the sacrifices and dedication.

A Must Read

Regardless of your role in this world, we were all born. This book is so great at guiding the reader on where we are now, where we once were and where do we go from here related to birth and in a broader sense culture and racism. Thank you Rebecca!!
