SummaryAdd a Summary
This essential reference provides accurate and insightful information beyond what expecting parents might have thought to ask. Information is very clearly delivered, with plenty of very open, well-informed discussion, and over 300 photographs and instructive illustrations. Sound scientific and medical information is provided, alongside findings on the personal experiences of people making various choices. Topics addressed include the pros and cons of various birthing choices, dealing with pain in pregnancy and in childbirth, genetic testing decisions, pre-natal health, psychological effects of pregnancy, exercise during and after pregnancy, and much more. Sheila Kitzinger is arguably the leading educator in this field -- a social anthropologist who has investigated both the medical and personal issues around childbearing. She is widely respected throughout the western world, with book published in 20 languages. Kitzinger is also known as a leading advocate of informed, free choice of birthing options for parents.
