The classic guide to an unmedicated childbirth. For women birthing vaginally, 90% of Bradley births are drug-free

The Bradley Method(R), used and praised by women for almost seventy years, prepares you for drug and surgery-free childbirth and puts you in control by providing the tools to navigate evidence-based care. In Natural Childbirth the Bradley Way, certified childbirth educator Susan McCutcheon--one of Dr. Bradley's first students--makes this natural approach to childbirth more accessible than ever. You will learn:

- Exercises and nutrition to get your body ready for birthing
- To defuse fear by understanding all aspects of laboring
- How to involve your partner as a birth coach and a fully engaged participant
- What's driving the induction epidemic and how to avoid an unnecessary induction
- What's driving the cesarean surgery epidemic and how to reduce your risk
- How to get the information you need to make informed decisions about your birth.
