Description: Concentrates on helping parents manage the pain of childbirth - from the first contraction, throughout the labour to the actual birth itself. This book tells how the body works in labour and clearly explains how movement, breathing, vocalisation, visualisation and other techniques can be used to alleviate pain.
Synopsis: The most anticipated part of pregnancy is giving birth; yet most pregnancy books devote only a chapter or two to this miraculous event and the physical discomfort that accompanies it. Uniquely, "Birth Skills" concentrates solely on helping you, and your partner, manage the pain of childbirth - from the first contraction, throughout the labour to the actual birth itself. Written by leading obstetric physiotherapist Juju Sundin, with Sarah Murdoch providing a mother's point of view, this wonderful book tells you exactly how your body works in labour and clearly explains how you can use movement, breathing, vocalisation, visualisation and many other easy-to-follow techniques to alleviate pain. Juju and Sarah's sound advice makes "Birth Skills" an invaluable guide for all expectant parents.
