Product description

Synopsis

All over the world and throughout history women have chosen to walk and move during labour and to give birth in upright positions. It is only we in the West who have had the notion that a woman should lie on her back to deliver a baby. Janet Balaskas' campaining has helped an ever increasing number of women and experts to recognize the value of this approach to childbirth. The revised edition of this handbook will help women to prepare for active childbirth whether at home or in hospital. It includes new sections on "Birth in Water" and "Recovery after the Birth" starting with breastfeeding and the first few weeks of life with baby. It also gives pre-natal and post-natal exercises and details of the Active Birth Movement, its history and the Active Birth Manifesto. Janet Balaskas is a counsellor for childbirth and trained with the National Childbirth Trust.

From the Publisher

Every year the number of home births is increasing – Active Birth is not a trend it’s a definite social change and women want to know about it.
Active Birth is increasingly practiced in UK hospitals. Birthing pools are standard – and over half in the UK are supplied by Active Birth.
