5.0 out of 5 stars great book - prepares you for all eventualities, 8 Aug 2012
This review is from: Birth Skills: Proven pain-management techniques for your labour and birth (Paperback)
this book was really useful in explaining what happens to your body during labour and how best you can respond to manage the pain.
the techniques suggested were very effective at managing pain and the book never plays down the pain of labour which is the problem i found with other books which advocate only techniques of breathing and visualization.

the book also prepares you for the fact that you may need pain relief or medical intervention.
this was absolutely brilliant! a lot of books which advocate natural birth claim that is you do what they say you won't need pain relief or intervention leaving women to feel panic and a sense of failure when things dont go to plan

Jujus books gives you techniques to manage the pain and a mindset that prepares you to make the right decision for you what ever happens.
I was hoping for a natural waterbirth but ended up being induced- which was incredibly painful. Jujus techniques got me through 6 hours of non stop excruciating contractions and the mental preparation the book gave me gave me the confidence to know when i needed pain relief and to go for it without feeling a sense of failure.

the book really helped get my partner involved as well. birth can be really hard for partners. this book helps them understand what is happening to your body and partners can assist with the techniques which gets you working together as a team - great for both of you. the preparation that my partner and i did really helped us to work together and helped him stay calm when things started to deviate from our game plan.

i ended up with an epidural and a c section because the baby wouldn't descend - something i had absolutely no control over. i feel very positive about my birth experience because i know i did exactly what i needed to when i needed to do it.

i have a beautiful healthy baby and a strengthened relationship with my partner. this book focuses on the fact that a positive outcome is a healthy baby and a birth experience that you feel good about..... not pursuing a natural birth at all costs
