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.

this is one great book. You can also learn empowering birth skills at home from www.hypnobirthinghub.comshow more

I loved this book! While not for everyone I found this book informative and empowering, and to me, it therefore did what it set out to do. If you would like to give yourself and your partner some options to deal with labour pain without drugs or simply to delay drugs then this book will give you several techniques to allow you to do that. You may or may not use them when it comes time to deliver your baby, but having options gives you power and having power gives you back some control!show more
