Product description

Synopsis

Sarah Buckley might be called a third-wave natural birth advocate. A doctor and a mother, she approaches the question of how a woman and baby might have the most fulfilling birth experience with respect for the wisdom of both medical science and the human body. Using current medical and epidemiological research plus women's experiences (including her own), she demonstrates that what she calls 'undisturbed birth' is almost always healthier and safer than hospital births. Her wise counsel on issues like breastfeeding and sleeping during post-partum helps extend the gentle birth experience into a gentle parenting relationship.

About the Author

SARAH BUCKLEY, MD, is an internationally known authority on natural birthing and parenting choices. She has published numerous articles in Mothering magazine and Midwifery Today. She lives in Brisbane, Australia.
