Hill explains why hospitals and doctors may not be the right choice for everyone, and offers insight on topics like the pros and cons of hospitals, birthing centers and home births; the importance of making a clear birth plan; which prenatal tests are necessary and which are optional; bed rest vs. exercise; and natural techniques to manage pain and promote breastfeeding.
