Here is a holistic approach to childbirth that examines this profound rite-of-passage not as a medical event but as an act of self-discovery. Exercises and activities such as journal writing, meditation, and painting will help mothers analyze their thoughts and face their fears during pregnancy. For use during birth, the book offers proven techniques for coping with labor pain without drugs, a discussion of the doctor or midwife's role, and a look at the father's responsibilities. Childbirth education should also include what to expect after the baby is born. Here are baby basics, such as how to bathe a newborn, how to get the little one to sleep, and tips for getting nursing off to a good start. Pregnancy, birth, and postpartum is a process of continuous learning and adjustment; Birthing From Within provides the necessary support and education to make each phase of birthing a rewarding experience.

I really enjoyed the art therapy exercises in this book. I'm not an artist at all, but this really helped me process my thoughts and fears about labor and motherhood in a way that I just couldn't do by verbal means (such as journaling). A very helpful book!

Although I skipped many of the activities, i found the book to be a wonderful resource in building my self confidence and helping me to get in touch with my fears about natural childbirth. I dont usual purchase books but i ended up buying it at half price books so i could reference it throughout my pregnancy.
