Hypnobirthing certainly doesn't involve being hypnotised; instead, it teaches you how your body works on a muscular and hormonal level when in labour and how you can use various relaxation techniques to ensure you are working with your body (rather than against it), making birth more efficient and comfortable. Thandiwe Newton, actress and campaigner 'This is a wonderful book; honest, wise and immensely practical. It's definitely worth a read, but if you feel as though you're struggling with being 'good enough', it might be worth waiting until you feel more confident as otherwise it might be anxiety provoking if you're not able to feel as though you're able to love your baby right now. Packed with information about rights and choices, it has rapidly become the book most recommended by midwives, doulas and antenatal teachers. Chatty and thorough and uplifting: this book is a whacking great confidence boost right where it's needed.

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. The cards can be used in a number of ways: by pregnant women who want to work through their birth choices in a more visual and dynamic way; by those who want to explore them with their partner, doula, midwife or other supporters; or by birth professionals as a starting point for activities and discussions with their clients. A widely acclaimed bestseller since it was first published, it has empowered hundreds of thousands of women worldwide to make informed, positive choices about their births. Milli Hill usefully divides labour into 14 stages, so you know what's going on with your body and your baby through the entire birth process.This book was published in 1994 and I would love to see the authors publish an update with more current information and updates to the many predictions they made throughout. The Positive Breastfeeding Book doesn't promise to make it easy, nor will it get up in the middle of the night for you, but it will empower you with the knowledge and encouragement you need to feed your baby with confidence. Accessible, engaging and explained in a simple and conversational style, the pages are packed with information and real life stories covering:• The stages of labour and birth• How different forms of pain relief, including epidurals, work• Induction of labour, ceasars and assisted birth• Monitoring of the baby and mother• Post childbirth recoveryProfessor Tong carefully and simply breaks down the evidence and facts to provide you with everything you need to know to turn anxiety and trepidation about childbirth into confidence, empowerment and cherished, life-long memories. This book talks about traumatic births and came about as a result of Sheila's experiences listening to women with birth trauma. Siobhan's advice and guidance will change your mindset and enable you to navigate your birth with practical tools that ensure you feel calm and in control throughout.

It’s rare for Big Book Little book to feature a non-fiction book, even more so to feature a pregnancy book.A true feat of intimate, illuminating reporting, Birth is a profound examination of the deeply personal and structural forces that shape life-defining choices, experiences, dreams, and futures. I think it would do wonders for helping moms to tell their doctors they want to have an unmedicated birth without there being skepticism. J.

What I noticed reading through (most of) it this time was the spirit of it: it's a spirit of fighting for what you want/believe is right, and of seeking for the information you need.
