Présentation de l'éditeur

The most anticipated part of pregnancy is giving birth; yet most pregnancy books devote only a chapter or two to this miraculous event and the physical discomfort that accompanies it. Uniquely, Birth Skills concentrates solely on helping you, and your partner, manage the pain of childbirth - from the first contraction, throughout the labour to the actual birth itself.

Written by leading obstetric physiotherapist Juju Sundin, with Sarah Murdoch providing a mother's point of view, this wonderful book tells you exactly how your body works in labour and clearly explains how you can use movement, breathing, vocalisation, visualisation and many other easy-to-follow techniques to alleviate pain.

Juju and Sarah's sound advice makes Birth Skills an invaluable guide for all expectant parents.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Fantastic active techniques for labour 6 février 2013
Par HGL - Publié sur Amazon.com
I purchased a number of books on labour and this book really resonated for me. In a nutshell, the premise of the book is: 1. Contractions are healthy pain and that's what the body is designed to do. 2. As the pain increases, the uterus will become fatigued, this is normal. 3. The pain will cause your body to produce adrenalin. If the adrenalin is not used, you will become overwhelmed and begin to believe you can't do it. 4. Women need to use up the adrenalin by using physical and/or mental techniques to distract themselves from focusing on the pain. This is where foot stomping, stress balls, visualisation, breathing and vocalisation all play a part.
The book really resonated for me because I'm a naturally active and healthy person. I'm positive that my body can do it. I feel that I'm too cynical to try the hypnobirthing techniques, affirmations etc as the physical aspect makes a lot more sense to me.
Like others have mentioned, I'd love if Juju could produce a DVD to supplement the techniques.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 If you are considering going unmedicated, this book is a must read!!! 21 février 2013
Par Diana Thomas - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
This book is a must read, if you are thinking about an unmedicated birth. I was tempted by the idea of going unmedicated, but decided to leave my options open until I actually knew what labor was like. My doula asked me to read this book and I skimmed the whole thing thinking that some of it was not for me at all (most of the stuff of vocalizing just sounded crazy). As I got closer to my due date I got more and more convinced that I wanted to try going unmedicated but unfortunately my baby was late and I had to be induced. I knew that inductions are often much worse than natural labor because everything happens more quickly and labor is more intense, so I had resigned myself to the idea of getting an epidural. When the big day came, I was induced at 8:30AM in the morning and quickly had regular contractions that were not painful at all. At 10:30AM my doctor broke my water and the next contraction was already completely overwhelming. I started stumping until my doula got there. We tried several different things, like a birthing ball, sitting in a rocking chair etc. but my babies heart rate would go down whenever I sat down. So I finally just stood at the foot of my bed with my husband behind me and stomped and eventually grunted my way through labor until 12:30PM. Vocalizing came absolutely natural to me, despite the fact that I had thought it was the most ridiculous thing I had ever heard of. It just felt right to make those funny noises somehow and really relieved some of the panic I felt with my contractions just 90 seconds apart. By 12:30 PM I was so overwhelmed, however, that I was ready to have an epidural. So my doula got the nurses to come in and check my progress before we called the anesthesiologist. To everyone's surprise, I was already complete at that point. I was absolutely shocked. The 2 hours after my Dr. broke my water were definitely intense, but I had no idea I had gone through transition. All I could say is "I'm not ready to have a baby yet. This is too fast." But they got me to start pushing using a birthing bar and my Dr. barely made it there in time for my daughters delivery at 1:02PM. Pushing worked really well with the coffee press image in the back of my mind and lots of vocalizing to help me out (at one point during delivery someone slammed the door to my room shut because I was so loud, but I couldn't have cared less). I can't praise the techniques this book teaches enough!!! I had the best birthing experience I could have imagined despite having to be induced. Some of it may have been sheer luck, but I am convinced the book deserves major credit.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Cannot praise this book enough! 29 juillet 2011
Par Leigh-Ellen - Publié sur Amazon.com

I love love love this book! It was a fantastic match for me, and helped me to have a natural childbirth in a hospital. The book is crammed full of really helpful information about labor and birth, is written in a way that's easy to approach and understand, and is honest without being scary. The book is structured around understanding what is happening at a physiological level in your body, and leveraging that to your advantage during labor. It is clearly a natural childbirth book, but it is NOT judgemental about the choices women make during labor, and whether or not they choose to use medication for the pain. I am not a person who easily sits still and relaxes, and I love this book because it is full of active strategies and positive actions women can take at all stages of labor. I've been recommending this book to every pregnant friend I have- it is that great.

If you do get this book, I would recommend three things. First- read the entire book, every word. There were stories shared by many women about how they actually put the strategies to use during their labors, and what it was like to apply them. In addition, there's a section at the back written by women who had unexpected developments during labor, and wound up using medication or having a c-section (even though their goals were to have a natural childbirth). The author (Juju Sundin) wrote positive and encouraging words in response to each of these women, which ended the book such a kind and warm tone. So I didn't feel like I'd be a failure if I didn't have a natural childbirth in the end. Second, give yourself time to practice the techniques, and put together a collection of things (like music, or balls to squeeze, or pictures) that you think will work for you. Finally, don't be shy and embarassed. These are active, goofy-looking strategies that will bring some odd looks your way, especially if you give birth in a hospital.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 This book helped me achieve a natural birth 23 juillet 2009
Par S. Matthes - Publié sur Amazon.com
I used this book for both of my two births and it helped through the pain without medication. In particular the walking, stamping and hitting my fists together in a rhythym. I also used strong visualisation, especially about relaxing your jaw to allow the cervix to open and massaging or hugging your baby with each contraction.

Even if you have had a baby, and having another or about to have your first baby, then this book is a MUST BUY. This is an easy-reading book, but gives practical, easy advice and strategies of how to cope with the pain of labour and child birth. The authors give fantastic exercises to practice with, the understanding as to why you do something, and the how to do it, and even alternatives. The authors are not fanatical about giving birth drug-free, nor do they endorse drugs. This is purely about helping you cope with the level of pain, and making your labour and birth experience what you want it to be. Oftentimes, once you're overcome with the pain of labour and childbirth everything you learned or thought you wanted to do goes out the window. If you have certain ideas and certain decisions you want during your labour and childbirth, this book helps you stay in control and understand what you need to do to cope with the pain. It should be handed out to everyone on their first appointment with a doctor, it is a life-saving tool when in the throws of labour. Definite, definite tool to not live without.
