The Five Standards for Safe Childbearing 4th Edition & Revised
By: David Stewart,
If your top priority is your baby's life and health, and if you are going to read only one book before you have your baby—read this one."
-Robert S. Medelsohn, M.D.
- The United States spends more money on maternity care than any country in the world, yet has worse mortality rates than more than a dozen other countries who spend less. Why?
- More than a million American babies have died since 1950 who would have lived were it not for doctors and hospital—babies that would have been alive and healthy had they been born at home with a midwife.
- Every 29 minutes another baby dies unnecessarily in a U.S. hospital—victims of abusive obstetrics and pediatrics. What you don't know can hurt you and your family.
Mothers, this book could save you and/or your baby from serious injury and even death. Maternal-child health professionals, without knowing what is in this book, you are a danger to your patients.
