Silent Knife

Authored by: Nancy Cohen & Lois Estner

Often referred to as 'the bible of cesarean prevention,' Silent Knife discusses both the technical and emotional aspects of a cesarean and of Vaginal Birth After Cesarean (VBAC). Written in a style that leaves you feeling as if you're having a conversation with the author, readers often find within the pages a safe place to process their birth experiences, and learn how to plan a birth experience with a high likelihood of satisfaction and a low likelihood of needing surgical intervention.



Silent Knife by Cohen and Estner

 This is a L-o-n-g overdue thank you for saving my life.  A dogmatic

bully that bought a medical license told me in rude words that if I didn't

want a repeat C-Section, I should "make my arrangements soon".

 

I have no regrets about leaving him for a kind doctor.  I also have nothing

but deep gratitude towards you and more than one child birth advisor 

whose encouragement empowered me to have not only that daughter

but two more without needless drugging.

 

Today, she is the mother of two handsome healthy boys--born

vaginally.  I'm thankful for her and for you.
