abstract

  • Although having a baby today is safer, more comfortable and more controlled than ever before, changes in society's expectations have resulted in considerable dissatisfaction for both childbearing women and physicians. The apparent conflict can be resolved by open minded, clear and precise communication, and by our recognition of a woman's right to choose what we may not think is right for her.
