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. A doctor and a mother, she 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 demonstrates that what she calls "undisturbed birth" is almost always healthier and safer than high-technology approaches to birth. Her wise counsel on issues like breastfeeding and sleeping during postpartum helps extend the gentle birth experience into a gentle parenting relationship.

Embracing a natural birth through HypnoBirthing® allows parents to take control of the most important event of their lives, and build a stronger connection with their pre-born baby as a conscious little person they can interact with, even before birth. Marie Mongan explodes the myth of pain as a natural accompaniment to birth. It is the fear of pain, a fear that keeps the body tense and closed during birth, which must be released to allow the experience of a gentle birth. HypnoBirthing® helps to shorten birthing and recovery time, allows better (and earlier) bonding with the baby, which means that babies sleep better and feed more easily in their first weeks. REVISED AND UPDATED TO INCLUDE: An in-depth understanding of how the birthing body works Nature's Perfect Birth Plan–why we innately know how to birth without intervention Why medicalised labor hurts more—and why it doesn't have to when done naturally Learning how to birth instinctively How to transition from the afterglow of birth with post-natal care Using the HypnoBirthing® exercises - positive thinking, visualisation, breathing and physical preparation - will lead to a happy and comfortable pregnancy and the confidence, trust and life-affirming nature of your birth can be life-changing for your new family.
