Description du produit

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 overall I found it helpful and was glad I purchased it 2 septembre 2015

4 weeks postpartum - I can say that this book helped. I still got pain meds and epidural, but I was in early labor for a whole week before she arrived (41 weeks and a day over due). I found the mantras, focus techniques, and tricks to be helpful. I didn't care for the back stories from other moms to interest me: overall I found it helpful and was glad I purchased it. Sharing it with my prego friends!!
5.0 étoiles sur 5 I cannot say enough good things about this book 17 mars 2017
Par Christine Elliott - Publié sur

I cannot say enough good things about this book! I am so grateful for finding this guide that I am compelled to write my first review of anything, ever.

After having an epidural with my first baby, I wanted to try a non medicated delivery with my second. It was hard to tell what I was doing when I had the epidural (although I was so thankful for it at the time), and I felt it stalled my labor enough to the point where I needed to have pitocin (not fun). I found this book so helpful because it taught me how to manage my pain through a variety of methods. I took any opportunity I could to practice these techniques in the weeks leading up to delivery. If I had a leg cramp, I tried to breathe through it. If I stubbed my toe, I tried to focus on another part of my body that didn't hurt. It got me in the right mind-set to be able to manage my pain and not completely give in to it when I finally did go into labor. Did it still hurt? Yes. But what I learned in this book kept me from being overwhelmed by the pain and gave me the confidence to deliver without any pain medication.

Some reviews focus on the repetitiveness of the text, but I found this to be beneficial (though a bit tiring to read at points) because it stuck with me long after I had finished reading the book. Obviously, it won't work for everyone, but out of all the birthing books that I have read, this one stuck with me the most. As a bonus, my husband secretly read it without telling me until later and was a true champ during my labor because he understood what I was trying to do. I'd recommend having your support person read it as well.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Go Into Labour Fully Equipped 30 août 2010

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.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 What I love about this book is it gives you real skills ... 11 mai 2016

Buy this book! The empahsis is on making it all the way with no epidural, but it's not judgy at all about those who do plan on getting the drugs at some point in labor. What I love about this book is it gives you real skills for dealing with pain, and instructions on how to practice those skills at home. That way you can get a good labor established before the epidural, which may or may not slow labor. You never know. But I feel really empowered by the practicality of this book! Also has great tips for partners.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 A really good book to feel prepared 1 septembre 2013
Par Celine Derudder - Publié sur

What I loved when I read "Birth skills" is the mix between what's written by the teacher, Juju, about the content of her birth preparation classes, and the input from her former student Sarah, who applied the various techniques.

Also, for each technique (leg/arm rythmic movements, vocalization and breathing, visualization, use of stress balls...) there are a few short paragraphs from yet other students who also explain how they used a particular technique and how exactly it worked for them during their labor.
There is a lot in there for birth partners as well, how they can help concretely throughout. It's wonderful to read about the very real teamwork between some couples during the birth process!

It was very convincing to say the least - you do end up wanting to give it a try!
What I also really liked is how Juju starts by explaining she has nothing against hospitals : there is not even a hint of guilt trip if you think about going for an epidural after all; rather, the point is for women to feel empowered and in control at the best of their abilities during the birth (there is no"hardcore" rooting for natural birth at all costs).
It also tells you upfront there are going to be some repetitions because that's how you end up remembering stuff!

I hesitated between Ina May's book and this one: but the excerpt I read from Ina May's book started with different women's long stories on their natural births, and this did not appeal to me.

EDIT POST-BIRTH : I had a quick and natural labor, but gave up on many of the skills when the going got rough; I squeezed my partner's hands instead of stress balls, and what helped me most was concentrating really hard on exhaling loudly and focusing on a point (the faucet, or a painting on the wall)... as to the essential oils and music they were clean forgotten! Still, I came in confident and feeling prepared, and I am sure a lot is thanks to the book and did help!
