Introduction
Believing that the birth of a child is one of the most important human experiences, Dr. Agnes Gereb provides Hungarian women and their families with the opportunity to experience "undisturbed" birth in intimate, safe surroundings. She oversees a national network of midwives and doulas who are changing the care given to mothers, families, and infants inside and out of institutional hospitals. She unites the advantages of undisturbed childbirth with the best of modern medicine in a humane setting-at home, in her birth center, and also in the institutional hospitals she is helping reform
