“In 2006, Lyerly began the Good Birth Project, a landmark research study that asks the question: What constitutes a good birth in the eyes of the childbearing women? Her research team conducted interviews with 101 mothers about their birth experiences, and the results of that study serve as the basis for this insightful book: an effort to craft a notion of the good birth that turns… on what women say is deeply at issue for them. While the book is aimed at mothers and soon-to-be-mothers, Lyerly also has an important message for the medical community, midwives, and other birth advocates who are in the middle of an important but polarizing debate (medical vs. natural childbirth), in which women lose.” Publishers Weekly
