Book Description :

The Birth Parter Handbook is a concise, contemporary guide for today's birth partners, showing them exactly what they can do to help create a positive birth experience, whether the mother gives birth naturally or with medication, at home, in a childbearing center, or in a hospital. With a special emphasis on the psychological changes of labor, this guide also introduces a new approach to understanding labor made popular through the author's nationwide childbirth workshops, called the "laboring mind response." Birth partners will gain new insight into the mother's altered state of mind and altered behavior during labor, and be given an easy-to-follow, eight-step method that teaches the mind to cooperate with the body and will help make childbirth less stressful and more natural for the mother.

Book Description :

The Neutrality Exercise is a playful practice that increases our emotional and psychological awareness, and challenges our responses to any topic towards which we choose to apply it. How? By tapping into our imagination through a meditative state. It can be challenging to remain neutral on a topic in real time. Using our imagination to walk us through various scenarios allows us time and space to process our thoughts and feelings without the pressure of real-time responses. The more we do this, the more ability we have to navigate what could otherwise be reactive situations. We increase our ability to engage in fruitful conversations and establish boundaries that allow everyone to move forward. It is our experience that doing this exercise repeatedly: - Decreases our tendency to react. - Increases our ability to respond. - Bolsters our ability to establish boundaries. This workbook is designed to guide you into The Neutrality Exercise as a practice. Our hope is that by doing what is set forth in this workbook, you will establish your own practice. The eventual goal is to apply The Neutrality Exercise to anything you want to challenge your emotional and psychological reactions to. We share this tool with the hope that you apply it toward your own liberation. *** This book is filled with exercises especially tailored for those supporting their partners through the birthing process.

Book Description :

An illustrated hands-on guide to the dynamics of the female pelvis for expectant mothers, midwives, and birth professionals • Provides fully illustrated exercises to help the expectant mother prepare her pelvis for birth and gain confidence in her body’s innate ability to birth her child • Details the anatomical intricacies of the female pelvis and its capabilities for expansion and return to its original form • Presents movements and positions to ease discomfort, enhance the productivity of contractions, aid the internal expansion of the pelvis, and prevent and treat issues that may arise such as “failure to progress” The dynamic power of the female pelvis is the key to a gentle birth. Throughout pregnancy, hormones soften the ligaments and joints of the pelvis in preparation for labor, a time when the four bones of the pelvis--the two ilia (hip bones), the coccyx (tailbone), and the sacrum--do their intimate dance of release, rotation, and counter-rotation around the soon-to-be newborn. In this hands-on guide based on 15 years of research and workshops in maternity wards, movement teachers and health professionals Blandine Calais-Germain and Núria Vives Parés detail the anatomical intricacies of the female pelvis and its capabilities for expansion and return to its original form. Providing fully illustrated exercises to help the expectant mother prepare for this pelvic transformation and gain confidence in her body’s innate ability to birth her child, they also present a variety of movements and positions for use during the different stages of labor to ease discomfort, enhance the productivity of contractions, aid the internal expansion of the pelvis, and prevent and treat issues that may arise such as “failure to progress.” Ideal for the expectant mother and her birthing partner, this book will be a welcome addition to the library of every midwife, obstetrician, doula, and movement professional who teaches pregnant women.
