This is an older post, but I think one of the things that might help is to look at the Science of birth. There are many many studies about birth and they all point to using interventions only when medically necessary because it improves outcomes for mom and baby. Books that can speak to this are: Your Best Birth, Thinking Woman's Guide to a Better Birth, Pushed, Bradley Books are great, Obstetric Myths Vs Research Realities, Any books by Penny Simkin or Sheila Kitzenger, Normal Childbirth: Evidence and Debate. Lots of these books are for birth professionals, but they help you get over the hippy material and straight to the facts. Hope this helps.
