Here is a holistic approach to childbirth that examines this profound rite-of-passage not as a medical event but as an act of self-discovery. Exercises and activities such as journal writing, meditation and painting will help mothers analyze their thoughts and face their fears during pregnancy. For use during birth, the book offers proven techniques for coping with labour pain without drugs, a discussion of the doctor or midwife's role, and a look at the father's responsibilities.
Childbirth education should also include what to expect after the baby is born. Here are baby basics, such as how to bathe a newborn, how to get the little one to sleep, and tips for getting nursing off to a good start. Pregnancy, birth and postpartum is a process of continuous learning and adjustment; Birthing from Within provides the necessary support and education to make each phase of birthing a rewarding experience.
