Book Summary:

This new edition provides an up-to-date and thoughtful 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. Across the world, support in labour has been shown to reduce obstetric interventions and improve outcomes for women and babies. Written by two highly experienced midwifery authors, this text draws on a wide range of cutting-edge research on this topic, identifying how the evidence can be applied to everyday practice. Narratives from women and practitioners, including midwives, doulas, childbirth educators and students, 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 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, this is an ideal text for student midwives and an important reference for practising midwives, doulas and other childbirth practitioners.

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

Book Summary:

Scholars turn to reproduction for its ability to illuminate the practices involved with negotiating personhood for the unborn, the newborn, and the already-existing family members, community members, and the nation. The scholarship in this volume draws attention to doula work as intimate and relational while highlighting the way boundaries are created, maintained, challenged, and transformed. Intimate labour as a theoretical construct provides a way to think about the kind of care doulas offer women across the reproductive spectrum. Doulas negotiate boundaries and often blur the divisions between communities and across public and private spheres in their practice of intimate labour. This book weaves together three main threads: doulas and mothers, doulas and their community, and finally, doulas and institutions. The lived experience of doulas illustrates the interlacing relationships among all three of these threads. The essays in this collection offer a unique perspective on doulas by bringing together voices that represent the full spectrum of doula work, including the viewpoints of birth, postpartum, abortion, community based, adoption, prison, and radical doulas. We privilege this broad representation of doula experiences to emphasize the importance of a multi-vocal framing of the doula experience. As doulas move between worlds and learn to live in liminal spaces, they occupy space that allows them to generate new cultural narratives about birthing bodies.

Book Summary:

To practice effectively, midwives need to continually update their knowledge of pregnancy and birth. This fully revised and updated new edition of The Midwife's Labour and Birth Handbook is a practical and accessible guide to providing midwifery care while promoting 'women-centred' care and normality. It explores important questions such as: Why are women not encouraged to make a birth plan for elective CS? If a VBAC woman declines continuous CTG monitoring then why shouldn’t she use a waterbirth pool? If shoulder dystocia is anticipated, why not encourage all-fours birth in preference to a semi-recumbent position? Why are the needs of the delivering professional so often put before the advantages of upright postures for promoting descent of a second twin? This new edition incorporates the latest research and national guidelines, and includes new chapters on twins, caesarean section, bullying, risk management and IOL. By bringing together the latest midwifery information in a woman-centred way, The Midwife's Labour and Birth Handbook is an essential guide for both student midwives and experienced practising midwives.
