About this deal

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. After giving birth, I found Sears' description about how a certain position can stop pain during back labor to be laughable. It’s rare for Big Book Little book to feature a non-fiction book, even more so to feature a pregnancy book. I think it is important for potential purchasers to recognise that it is impossible for any author to cover all eventualities and nuances of individual circumstances, and it would be naive to try.

I tend to agree with the Sears' naturalistic tendencies in general, but I do think the subject of pain medication during labor (and the epidural in particular) are handled in a somewhat biased fashion. There was an obvious, fair, and nonjudgemental, bent towards natural childbirth, which I appreciated because they were frank about their position. It is important that you always seek the guidance of your doctor or other qualified health professional with any questions you may have regarding your health, your pregnancy or any medical conditions. Her third book, My Period, is a must-have puberty guide for pre-teen girls, with information about everything from cycle awareness and charting, to the correct names for body parts, to confidence and self-care. He explained how the Lamaze method is mostly focused on distraction, whereas the Bradley method is more about accepting, working with, releasing and surrendering to (rather than escaping) the contractions.This book is a valuable resource for anyone who is soon to give birth, and to birth workers and anyone supporting parents through pregnancy and birth. Bill and Martha Sears are uniquely qualified to answer virtually every question you might have about the birth process.

It is also refreshing to read something positive about all types of birth - I didn't feel like I was being preached to. 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.This book doesn’t take long to get through, but provides useful insights and ideas to help with recovery from Birth Trauma.
