In YOGA AND CHILDBIRTH Tony Crisp explains how the practice of yoga can help to make the moment of childbirth not one of pain or discomfort, but of ecstasy. He describes the basic precepts of yoga, with simple postures, relaxation and breathing exercises specially designed for pregnant women. Particular importance is placed on diet and on the correct mental attitude to pregnancy and its influence on the unborn child. An A-Z offers natural treatment for the common problems of pregnancy, and a step-by-step guide tells you just what to do as your baby starts arriving.
