    by Gregory J., MD White

  • Spiral-bound:
  • Price: $20.00

Simply put, it is a reference tool that you can use in case of an unforeseen complication during childbirth. It is laid out in an organized way and tells you what to do if you run into the most common birth complications - excessive bleeding, baby not breathing, cord prolapse, etc.

    If you are considering a home birth, this book and an infant CPR class are invaluable. Even if you plan on doing a hospital birth, this book is worthwhile. Why? because it is nice having the peace of mind to know how to handle problems yourself. Chances are, you will not need the information presented in this book because natural births have little to no complications. However, it is good material to know.

    by Lynn M. Griesemer

  • Paperback: 376 pages
  • Price: $22.00
  • Book Description
  • This book is a presentation of unassisted homebirth (childbirth without an obstetrician or midwife) as it relates to psychological growth and development of the couple, the woman and the man. It addresses why people choose to give birth unassisted, why couples should consider unassisted homebirth and why so many are against unassisted homebirth. It shows how planned unassisted birth is safer than in the hospital and almost always joyful.

It has several unassisted birth stories after 1990 including: babies born at 36 and 43 weeks gestation, waterbirth, Rh- mother, breech twins, unassisted birth after cesarean (U-BAC), first baby a "Do-it-Yourself" birth, fourth generation baby born in the same house. The Stories include situations with baby born in amniotic sac, with meconium, and with the cord wrapped tightly around baby's neck. Babies were born to parents ranging from age 21 to 44.

    It includes chapters on preparing for an unassisted homebirth, self-actualization, how childbirth is a feminist issue, major deterrents to unassisted homebirth, unassisted birth gone awry (death and disillusion), how to recover/heal from a traumatic birth, home-based living (homebirth, homeschool, working from home), midwives' role in the birth process, advocacy.

     

    Choosing Waterbirth
    by Lakshmi Bertram

  • Paperback: 160 pages
  • Price: $17.00
  • Book Description
  • Bertram, a mother of five and a yoga instructor, recounts each of her labor and delivery experiences using the gentle and natural method of water birth. Intended as an illustrated manual from pregnancy to birth to recovery, the book includes sections on prenatal yoga postures, techniques for birthing in water, choosing a home birth, breast feeding, and parenting a new baby. This intensely personal work is imbued with a spiritual perspective relative to both the physical and psychological aspects of motherhood.

    Childbirth doesn't have to be painful, stressful, or degrading. In this age of the epidural epidemic, when birth is treated as surgery or illness, "Choosing Waterbirth" details how to make childbirth a positive experience, both empowering and beautiful. Bertram, explains how this natural, harmonious, healthy, and low-pain birth method allows women to reclaim the dignity and sacredness that is the true essence of the birth experience.
