A Good Birth: Finding the Positive and Profound in Your Childbirth Experience
Drawing on her landmark study involving more than one hundred mothers, a renowned ob-gyn shares the secrets to a good birth.
Most doctors think of a “good” birth only in terms of medical success. But Dr. Anne Lyerly knows firsthand that many important elements are often overlooked. Her three-year study of a diverse group of moms explored what matters most to women during childbirth. The results, presented to the public for the first time in A Good Birth, show what really matters goes beyond the clinical outcome or even the usual questions of hospital versus birthing center, and reveal universal needs of women, like the importance of feeling connected, safe, and respected.
The book’s wisdom is drawn from in-depth interviews with women with a wide variety of backgrounds and experiences, and whose birth stories range from quick and simple to complicated and frightening. Describing what went well, what didn’t, and what they’d do differently next time, these mothers give voice to the complete experience of childbirth, helping both women and their healthcare providers develop strategies to address the emotional needs of the mother, going beyond the standard birth plans and conversations. Transcending the “medical” versus “natural” childbirth debate, A Good Birth turns our attention to the crucial question of what makes the best birth possible.

Frank Viva's fresh follow-up to ALONG A LONG ROAD takes readers on another amazing ride through 35 feet of continuous art - this time through an innovative telling that reads both front to back, and back to front!
Embark on a journey beyond our wildest dreams! Start from one end of the book, and you're up in space. Follow a sweet creature's journey as he floats down and away from his home planet ...through outer space ...past the moon, into Earth's atmosphere...splashing down through the ocean's surface...and finally to the bottom of the sea, where he snuggles in for some well-needed rest. Or, start from the other end, and you're on the ocean floor. Our creature awakens and begins to float up through a watery undersea world...breaking through the surface and into the sky...beyond the clouds and past the moon...through the galaxy...to the far reaches of distant space...Until at last, he arrives home to be embraced by a cozy alien family on a distant planet. A LONG WAY AWAY is a wondrous and surprising journey; one that is vast, beautiful, and sometimes treacherous, but always resolves in the most comforting way - our charming creature is either venturing up to go home, or floating down to go to bed. Beautifully spare text is paired with art rich with vibrant detail, from schools of fish to airplanes to spaceships, comets, and planets; here is surprising and marvelous flight of fancy from rising star Frank Viva.
