I'd definitely recommend this to all expecting mothers. It completely altered my path in pregnancy and empowered me to make the choices that were right for me rather than just taking what was on offer. We deserve to have this guide. It offers incredible advice on what to expect while pregnant, the plethora of options and how to make a smooth transition to postpartum.
A must-have guide for all expecting moms out there. An authoritative guide to natural childbirth and postpartum parenting options from an MD who home-birthed her own four children.
Sarah Buckley might be called a third-wave natural birth advocate but she's also a doctor and a mother, who 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 explains that what she calls "undisturbed birth" and why it is almost always healthier and safer than high-technology approaches to birth. The book also tackles about common issues like breastfeeding and sleeping during postpartum and the way it helps extend the gentle birth experience into a gentle parenting relationship.
