What makes this book important is its comprehensiveness, its general readability, and the fact that it has been written by a practicing obstetrician rather than a health services researcher or an academic obstetrician

--The New England Journal of Medicine Offers a careful regimen for change and ready-to-use advice for pregnant women and their doctors.

--Publishers Weekly An incisive book, it should be on every obstetrician's reading list.--Mothering In this controversial volume, Dr. Strong dispels widespread misconceptions about the effectiveness of prenatal care in its current form and explains how mothers themselves may influence the course and outcome of their pregnancies to a greater degree than do their obstetricians. He provides specific questions that parents should be asking their health care providers to ensure that they and their babies receive the best care possible.
