I also REALLY liked the idiot s guide to natural childbirth She presents all sides to the issues and is just very uplifting and positive Basically, whatever you choose for your birththat s your choice Just know all sides of the issues and choose with all the information at your fingertips, but ultimately know that it is YOUR choice and if you choose to not use medication, here are some techniques to help you Also, just the constant reaffirmation that your body is made for this and it is totally possible to do it naturally, should you choose, and all the positive affirmations about labor and birth was just a fun read for me. I usually don t like the Dummies or Idiots type books, but this one was surprisingly helpful It was a quick read, went over a lot of what I already knew, but mostly helped me in preparing my birth plan It had advice for dealing with obstacles one may face regarding hospital procedures, but luckily I ve checked in with my birth center and these won t be problems in trying to have a natural birth Anyway, a useful library book Overall a good book What I liked about the book is how positive it was that a woman can have a natural childbirth My main dislikes was how much it pushed for the home birth experience , the negativity towards medical professionals and their claim that child birth can be Painless I am now expecting Number 5 and have never gone natural but I am this time around If there is one thing I know is that childbirth DOES hurt I just wanted help for coping strategies The book offers good insights and suggestions although I will not be applying it in its entirety. Clear, succinct, complete A satisfying overview of natural birth, encompassing hospital, birthing center, and homebirth settings A great launch point for further research.Written with intelligence, encouragement, and practicality A perfect orientation to all things relative to natural birth, from pregnancy through breastfeeding. Believe it or not, this was my favorite book about natural childbirth I received it as a sort of gag gift but it turned out to be extremely informative and helpful I d recommend it to anyone considering natural childbirth. I wanted to review techniques for laboring naturally, whether or not I actually was going to deliver naturally I was avoiding this book at first because it just seems so cliche, and maybe a little offensive I m not an idiot But as I was pulling books off the library shelf I just grabbed this one anyway I really liked how it was organized and fairly to the point Lots of pregnancy delivery books are kind of cheesy This one was fairly limited on the cheese it set forth a lot of important information without making cheesy jokes or sharing women s personal stories sometimes those can be nice, but mostly, I just wanted the info, I didn t care to hear Jenny s and Amanda s and Lindsey s etc birthing stories. Great overall information regarding birth without intervention I felt it was balanced, yet contained info and techniques not found in the most common pregnancy books Must read if even slightly considering natural childbirth approach.
