Product description

Review

I only wish I had read this when I was pregnant. Full to bursting with useful stuff! --Sarah Turner, The Unmumsy Mum

Seriously sound, straight-from-the-hip advice. --Mother&Baby Magazine

The Positive Birth Book takes expectant parents through the maze of information and choices, in a down to earth, practical, empowering, reassuring way. I highly recommend that you put your feet up, relax and enjoy preparing yourself for the birth of your baby by reading this great book. --Sue Atkins, ITV This Morning Parenting Expert

About the Author

Work out what kind of birth you really want, and learn how to maximise your chances of getting it, in this refreshing, warm and witty guide to pregnancy, birth and the early weeks. Packed with vital and cutting-edge information on everything from building the ultimate birth plan, to your choices and rights in the birth room; from optimal cord clamping, to seeding the microbiome; from the inside track on breastfeeding, to woman-centred caesarean, The Positive Birth Book shows you how to have the best possible birth, regardless of whether you plan to have your baby in hospital, in the birth centre, at home or by elective caesarean. Find out how the environment you give birth in, your mindset and your expectations can influence the kind of birth you have, and be inspired by the voices of real women, who tell you the truth about what giving birth really feels like.

Challenging negativity and fear of childbirth, and brimming with everything you need to know about labour, birth, and the early days of parenting, The Positive Birth Book is the must-have birth book for women of the 21st century.

Milli Hill is a writer who lives in Somerset with her partner and three small children. In 2012 she set up The Positive Birth Movement (PBM), a global network of antenatal discussion groups, with the aim of improving childbirth and giving women better access to support and information, not anticipating the huge appetite among women for more positive messages about birth. What started as a small idea became a global phenomenon, with over 400 groups around the world. As well as running the PBM, Milli also writes for various publications about all things birth, breastfeeding and motherhood. For over two years she wrote a popular column for Best magazine, and she's now a columnist for Telegraph Women.


From the Publisher

Endorsements for The Positive Birth Book

"The Positive Birth Book is like everything I ever googled pre-birth rolled into a friendly, warm format and is full-to-burtsing with USEFUL information. For example, I am rhesus negative and to be honest I never really understood what that meant, I just did what I was told! This book explains it so well. It is also refreshing to read something positive about all types of birth - I didn't feel like I was being preached to. I wish I had read this book during my pregnancies!"

Sarah Turner, The Unmumsy Mum.
