Birth Reborn : What Childbirth Should Be

Author(s): Michel Odent

Birth & Pregnancy

For over 40 years Michel Odent has been the world's leading 'birth guru'. He has pioneered a new philosophy of childbirth, making it a natural experience for women and providing settings that allow a woman to give birth her own way. Women become their own birthing experts, if they follow their instincts they can birth naturally, with the minimal intervention of medical science. Many of the birthing practices that Michel Odent has advocated are now common useage, including the creation of more homely birthing rooms, birthing pools and water births, labour without drugs and ensuring that the mother plays the key role in the experience of birth. 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. "Combining the roles of romantic, philosopher, surgeon and obstetrician as only a Frenchman could." - The Times "This is the man who has made childbirth a delightful, natural experience for so many women."
