In Birth Reborn Michel Odent outlines the choices available to the mother who wants to give birth naturally, in her own way and with full control over her own body, drawing on his decades of experience as an obstetrician who dealt with 1,000 births a year. It is central to his philosophy that birth is instinctive, and that an environment that promotes intimacy and creativity is essential in the experience of birth, and that the role of the midwife must be key to the mother's experience.Michel Odent has returned birth to how it should be. Birth Reborn gives expectant mothers the confidence and information they need in order to trust themselves to give birth without the drugs and medical procedures that are being increasingly recognised as harmful to the mother and to the baby's future development.
