"Roanna Rosewood wasn't afraid of birth. That was before her pregnancy ended in Caesarean, like one in three pregnancies do in America. On the operating table Roanna realized birth is more than the means to a baby: it's an ancient rite, one that she had just failed. Determined to birth naturally, Roanna disregards her doctor's orders for a repeat Cesarean and sets out to reclaim birth. From the obvious - writing a birth plan, exercising, and supplements - to the ridiculous - drinking frog extract and enduring the manual relocation of her liver - she goes to astonishing lengths to prepare herself for birth. But in the end, Roanna finds the secret to birth in the last place she expected. Cut, Stapled, and Mended is every woman's chance to experience natural birth from the comfort of a cozy reading chair, written by an expert - the person on the working side of the vagina. "--
