Having a baby? This is essential Reading
on 1 January 2009
Firstly, I want to say that I have the first edition of Dr Sarah Buckley's book, and this is the second edition which is available on Amazon. I am hoping that my brief review on the first edition will be useful though I understand there are some differences between the editions.
Sarah has written a brillinat book which covers topics relevant both to pregnancy and the post-natal period. Chapters cover Epiduaral, Caesarean Section, use of other pain-relief drugs in pregnancy, lotus birth, co-sleeping, attachment parenting and breastfeeding.
As a Dr, Sarah looks at research and uses this evidence in her book. There are also personal stories of her own birth experiences at home, including breech birth, water birth and home birth.
A wonderful read for those who are already pro natural birth as well as those who are still undecided and want to know more about their options.
I work as a birth professional and I have found that my clients who hope to achieve a natural birth, or a home birth, just love this book and find it an excellent source of information.
