Book Summary:

Fear of childbirth, the increasing use of epidurals and soaring caesarean section rates are the focus of much apprehension, debate, and controversy in contemporary maternity care. Across the world, support in labour has been shown to reduce obstetric interventions and improve outcomes for women and babies, yet women often report feeling unhappy with the support they receive. This textbook provides a clear and practical guide to supporting women in labour, looking at a range of techniques and approaches that promote a safe and positive experience of birth for women and their families. Written by two highly experienced midwifery authors, this text draws on up-to-date research, identifying how evidence can be applied to everyday practice. It includes narratives from women and practitioners, including midwives, doulas, childbirth educators and students. These are used to illustrate a range of situations where the quality of support is central to the quality of the experience and outcome. Supporting Women for Labour and Birth encourages readers to reflect on their experiences and examine the evidence provided by both research and the experiences of women and practitioners in order to explore how this could be incorporated into their practice. The only book to deal directly with the practical and emotional issues associated with labour support, it is an ideal text for student midwives and an important reference for practising midwives, doulas and other childbirth practitioners.

The book includes: the present birth choices a woman has the implications homebirth has upon midwifery practice how midwives can prepare and support women and their families the midwife’s role and responsibilities national and local policies, guidelines and available resources pain management options With a range of recent home birth case studies brought together in the final chapter, this accessible text provides a valuable insight into those considering homebirth.

Book Summary:

Your body has the innate ability to give birth, a knowledge that has evolved through thousands of years of evolution. Despite modern Western maternity care being the best in the world, many working within it agree that fear of childbirth amongst women is rising. This fear can influence the birthing process in a negative way. Something fundamental has been lost as our medical and technical expertise has improved. And women are losing out as a result. Susanna Heli, an experienced birth expert, physiotherapist and doula, shares her most effective tools to help you avoid stress and fear during labour and birth. Focusing on the essential principles of Breathing, Relaxation, The Voice and The Mind she steers you towards feelings of trust and safety, which are key to unlocking your birthing physiology. With fear no longer the focus, your energy is restored; by accessing this power you'll be able to give birth to your baby. She also offers practical advice and hands-on training for birthing partners. Susanna's compassionate approach will help you whether you give birth vaginally, by assisted birth or by caesarean section, whether you have chosen pain relief or not, and can help you to navigate even the most complicated birth, in hospital or at home. Above all, she seeks to empower women. Susanna Heli is a mother of two with over twenty years experience supporting women and their partners during birth. She is a leading proponent of the Birth Without Fear Method, and is dedicated to providing emotionally safe births for all women. www.birthbyheart.com
