With the change of society, even the delicate and natural event of childbirth has been turned on its head, originally characterized by home-births but moved towards mass hospitalization in the 1960s. The specter of safety and of the absence of pain has resulted in the practice of caesarean section, which is expected to more than double with respect to the European average. The popularity of painless childbirth, no longer considered an option but rather common practice, also risks creating inauthentic needs and unreasonable promises to honour. Rita Breschi confronts this subject theoretically, in light of her obstetric experience. Breschi confirms, with enthusiasm and conviction, that natural childbirth is, above all, a right of women, of their experience, and of their body. She reveals a new approach to natural childbirth, promoting the extraordinary resources nature bestows on every woman and child, and a philosophy that tries to facilitate and decondition the fear of this human experience. Illuminating aspects of development and awareness to protect the formative experience of love, the volume provides a modern reflection dedicated to the entire feminine public, future moms and midwives.

Rita Breschi is a midwife well known in the field for her competence and her determined and pragmatic character, resulting in her being the first (and for now, the only in Italy), non-medical chief of Centro Nascita “Margherita” in Florence, the first midwife birth center in the country. Born in Pisa in 1955, she received a degree in Midwifery in 2006 in addition to her diploma from the Scuola di Ostetrica (Midwifery School). Her studies also took form in many enriching experiences abroad. Today she works for the Azienda Sanitaria, specifically tasked with natural childbirth and breastfeeding.
