Sweetbay Doula Recommends this Book Because...
Starts with a slightly biased Foreword and Introduction but then walks you through how to find a good doctor, how to be prepared for any medical situation, what to do in emergencies, how to deal with experts, and what to do in case of serious illness.  Each chapter ends in a brief 1-2 page “Quick Guide” that summarizes the chapter in a few words.  I heard about this book on the Diane Rehm show a few years ago and will forever use it for my own family’s health.
