内容紹介

For counselor Nancy Wainer Cohen, this book is the sibling to Silent Knife: Cesarean Prevention and Vaginal Birth after Cesarean (Bergin & Garvey, 1983) her critically-acclaimed expose on America's growing reliance on cesarean sections. Open Season provides fresh insights and new information on the subject, offering guidance to childbearing couples, educators, health professionals, and scholars who value the natural path of childbirth. Readers will find this book timely, informative, shocking, irreverent, and extremely readable. Cohen's intimate writing style presents a compendium of knowledge on childbirth in the fashion of a personal letter. Her aim is to lower America's alarming reliance on cesarean section, which is currently at 25 percent of all births, and to return the responsibility for childbirth to women by encouraging them to choose the kind of birthing experience they wish to have. In addition to cesarean section, Cohen discusses many other generally unnecessary interventions performed on women during pregnancy and childbirth--such as fetal monitoring and routinized hospital procedures.

レビュー

"Obstetricians would be wise to read this book before their patients get their hands on it. The rate of unnecessary cesarean sections would be significantly reduced if Open Season were required reading for everyone taking childbirth education classes. Nancy Cohen's witty handling of a very serious subject may well be a turning point in American obstetric care."-Doris Haire, Chair Committee on Maternal & Child Health Former Chair, National Women's Health Network --このテキストは、 ペーパーバック 版に関連付けられています。

5つ星のうち 4.0 C-sections Rise to 22 percent in the States 2001/6/26
By Robbin Whachell - (Amazon.com)
形式:ペーパーバック
In the May, 2001 issue of "Parent" magazine, an article states that the c-section rate has risen to 22 percent. Why do ob's prefer to do sections? This is an alarming rate that cannot be ignored. This book helped me. I had a cesarean my first birth and this book helped give me courage to birth my next 3 children as VBAC's in my home, along with a good midwife. I've met the author when she visited our city on a speaking engagement and she is the salt of the earth. Although she may come across angry at times, she comes from her heart. AND for gosh sakes...these women are being cut up and having their God given rights stripped from them! By the current statistics, we still have a problem here people!! I had hoped this book would be out of date by now, but in reference again to the May article, not much has changed. Read the book. Be informed.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Wonderful Book, Wonderful Woman 2002/11/14
By Jenn Thomas - (Amazon.com)
形式:ペーパーバック
Nancy Wainer Cohen is THE pioneer of VBAC in the United States. Thanks to her activism in this area, Once a c-section, always a c-section no longer applies.
This book is a marvelous collection of thoughts, insights, experiences, and tools for helping women avoid cesarean, either primary or secondary, and is well worth the reading.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Very Thoughtful 2003/3/3
By Mary Miner - (Amazon.com)
形式:ペーパーバック
I know Nancy, and this is an example of how seriously she takes her support of women through the birthing process. She is wise, bright, clever, strong, and tells the truth, just as this book does. She will give you that same support if you are one of the lucky people she "midwives" through labor, delivery, and the life that comes after.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Oh my god! 2003/4/4
By Corinna L. Burt - (Amazon.com)
形式:ペーパーバック
I didn't even have a cesarean and still this book made me laugh, cry and shake with rage. If I have another baby I will require my midwife, doula or whatever to read this book! The first question on my list of midwife interview questions is "Have you read Open Season?" Yes, Nancy is angry, and I think it is completely justified. This book made me realize that everything I had suspected about American childbirth was true, and that a lot of the horror stories such as women being tied to the bed are still happening today.

5つ星のうち 3.0 Should be titled a collection of true stories 2000/8/30
By "answerseeker" - (Amazon.com)
形式:ハードカバー
I agree there is an alarming increase in cesarian delivery and birth interventions. However, I found the tone of this publication very angry and confrontational. Although truthful, the theme seemed to be stay away from hospitals because they will cesarian section you. I have been sectioned and feel a lot like many of the stories contained in the book. I also have had VBAC's with a mid-wife and birthing center afterwards. I read it as a refresher for another upcoming delivery, but I must say that I did not find many coping skills here.
I do see a value in every page of the first hand stories. Women in general need to take a firmer hand in the managing of all their medical care, not just childbirth and I think that comes across very well.
It also has many names of physicians you may want to avoid if you are seeking to not have an unnecessary cesarian section in quote form that could be important to patients not knowing their position on natural childbirth, VBAC's etc.
I do see the link it is suggesting that cesarian section can/is being used as a tool for staff time managment, patient time control management, physician convenience, income increasing for the medical profession and not always giving complete "informed consent" to the patient.
It does present many good arguments against induced labor, scheduled delivery times for induction, augmentation of labor, and scheduled first and repeat cesarian sections that are of value to the prospective laboring mother.
