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.

"Expecting Trouble calls into question many of the prevailing assumptions which have driven our country's maternity healthcare for decades." "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 pregnancy to a greater degree than do their obstetricians. In addition, he addresses larger policy issues concerning women's health, the ramifications of increased malpractice suits and of managed care for expectant mothers, and the dangers of financial motivations which can lead hospitals to retain high-risk babies for whom they have inadequate facilities." "Expecting Trouble details the most glaring deficiencies of American prenatal care and outlines what can be done to remedy them. In addition, it provides specific questions that parents should be asking their health care providers to ensure that they and their babies receive the best care possible."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
