Description

In August 2020 her second book, Give Birth Like a Feminist, was published by Harper Collins and has since been widely featured in the UK media including the BBC. Bill received his pediatric training at Harvard Medical School's Children's Hospital in Boston and The Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto -- the largest children’s hospital in the world, where he served as associate ward chief of the newborn nursery and associate professor of pediatrics. The AIMS Guide to Giving Birth to Your Baby explains how to use your body during labour and about positions to use for a smoother birth - including what is possible if you are having an assisted birth, an epidural and/or continuous fetal monitoring.

If you are still finding your birth difficult, whether or not it was described as traumatic, this book might help you feel less isolated and more able to move forwards. If you are an introvert, it can sometimes make motherhood hard, as you might find it hard to build new relationships in settings such as mother and baby groups, or else you might find it a real struggle to get the quiet that you need. Challenging negativity and fear of childbirth, and brimming with everything you need to know about labor, birth, and the early weeks of parenting, The Positive Birth Book is the must-have guide for pregnant women. She is a former President of the Royal College of Midwives (1994‑5), a founder member of the Association of Radical Midwives, and the first Chair of the Midwives Information and Resource Service. I actually started to get anxious the more I listened to it because it makes doctors and nurses seem like prison wardens who are going to make your experience terrible.

Planning, understanding the resources available to you, and developing your own birthing philosophy can make all the difference.

I have also written this for birth partners and the privileged few invited to support someone giving birth: mums, dads, sisters, friends, and so on. You'll find plenty of real stories and guidance throughout from mothers and experts in supporting breastfeeding. Above all, The Happy Birth Book emphasises that you are the expert on you, reminds you that your mind and body are connected (surprisingly this is often overlooked), and encourages you to aim high for a good experience.Therefore, I have tried to keep this book short; it’s an easy read that can be digested with focused reading in lieu of a few evenings of Netflix. It's a look at connection and attachment and how mothers are creating a loving relationship with their baby. My personal experience tells me that no matter how relaxed I am, I'm still going to experience cervical stretching as painful, and that for me, more active pain coping practices will work better. Tailor Sitting - loosens perineal tissues and stretches inner thigh muscles, strengthening them for birth. And let’s face it, planning a wedding is way more fun than boning up on the finer points of childbirth.

For the most part, while I love to indulge my passion for all things birth, I rarely read pregnancy and parenting books, my tastes tend to be a little less mainstream-parenting handbook, more evidence based textbook. It's a wonderful and compassionate read, as it can help normalise many of the emotions and experiences of mothers, especially in the early days. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but I can see how it might feel judging to some people in some circumstances, which I'm not sure I've seen or understood before. Whether you plan to have your baby in hospital, in a birth centre, at home or by elective caesarean, this essential, non-judgemental guide shows you how to raise your expectations and have the best possible birth experience. Having read the book several times, I feel confident that NO MATTER WHAT TYPE OF BIRTH I END UP HAVING, I will approach it with more knowledge than I did before, including the realisation that I have choice, whether I exercise those choices or not.

This book might help you understand a wee bit more about how you are feeling, and have more confidence to approach motherhood in a way that suits you. Written in Milli Hill’s trademark warm and witty style, discover vital information on everything from the truth about pain and what giving birth actually feels like, to your choices and rights in the birth room; from optimal cord clamping, to postnatal mental health; from the inside track on breastfeeding, to positive, gentle caesarean. Professor Tong carefully and simply breaks down the evidence and facts to provide you with everything you need to know to turn anxiety and trepidation about childbirth into confidence, empowerment, and cherished, life-long memories. Whether you plan to have your baby in hospital, in a birth center, at home, or by elective caesarean, this essential, nonjudgmental guide shows you how to raise your expectations and have the best possible birth experience.
