by Sandra Jacobs American College of Nurse-Midwives

Studies have shown that countries who employ nurse-midwives have an extremely low infant mortality rate. This book explores nurse-midwives and the services they provide in a variety of environments. Home births, birthing centers and having your baby in a hospital with a nurse-midwife in attendance are explored with pros and cons of each. Insurance costs, pre-existing health conditions, political and financial considerations and state-by-state licensing regulations are also explored in detail so people can make the best decision for themselves and their new babies.
