Abstract:One factor explaining why women choose unnecessary high-tech births is their lack of knowledge of the research.

The recently published Journal of Perinatal Education supplement issue written by the Coalition for Improving Maternity Services Expert Work Group gives Lamaze educators a rich resource to pass along to expectant parents.
