I'm 18 weeks pregnant and yet to give birth - this will be my first.
I've searched very carefully for a book on giving birth which makes natural and physical sense, without bombarding me with information on drugs and medical impliments.
When I picked up and begun reading this book I instantly felt relaxed and at ease.
It explains the physiology of giving birth in a simple and straightforward way, It teaches you how to harness your natural resources in order to deal more effectively with pain and contractions.
It teaches you to concentrate your mind on the natural healthy pain that your body is experiencing and how to use the adrenaline, a bi broduct of this pain, to ease the stress.
This book has made me feel relaxed and confident about birth - It is a wonderful book and I look forward to using the techniques I've learnt.
