An authoritative guide to natural childbirth and postpartum parenting options from an MD who home-birthed her own four children. Sarah Buckley might be called a third-wave natural birth advocate. A doctor and a mother, she approaches the question of how a woman and baby might have the most fulfilling birth experience with respect for the wisdom of both medical science and the human body. Using current medical and epidemiological research plus women's experiences (including her own), she demonstrates that what she calls "undisturbed birth" is almost always healthier and safer than high-technology approaches to birth. Her wise counsel on issues like breastfeeding and sleeping during postpartum helps extend the gentle birth experience into a gentle parenting relationship.

This book is for any woman considering a vaginal birth after one or more previous caesareans. What are the risks? What are the advantages? What is the best choice in your particular case? The author, Helene Vadeboncoeur, takes you through the research and also gives you a glimpse into other women's experiences through the use of first-hand accounts. It was, in fact, the author's experience of two very different births (one a caesarean, the next a VBAC) that inspired her to get a PhD. In her thesis she explored how women experience giving birth in hospital. Helene wanted to consider questions about birth because this is such an important event in women's lives. For over 10 years since then, she has divided her time between teaching and participating in research projects. (She is currently on the Board of the International MotherBaby Childbirth Organization.) She also regularly gives talks at conferences around the world. This means that you not only get the benefit of advice from a woman who's been through both a caesarean and a VBAC, you also get taken through the most up-to-date research (now updated for the 2nd edition). Serious information is presented in an upbeat, readable style. Comment from a consultant: "As a professional who is concerned about the risk in the caesarean rate I would like to suggest that all women who have anything to do with caesareans read this book. The author has collected research data and precious accounts, which will help women make an informed choice as to how to give birth to their babies." Feedback from a midwife: "Helene Vadeboncoeur offers women an important tool to support them if they choose to give birth vaginally after a previous caesarean." Comment from a reader of the original, French edition: "This book is a response to questions. It will serve to demystify fears and inspire confidence."

Kindererziehung gilt als mühselig, kompliziert und teuer. Straffe Stundenpläne, Leistungstests, teure Freizeitaktivitäten und jede Menge Kommerz bringen schon früh eine ungesunde Dosis Stress und Arbeitsethos in das Leben unserer Kinder. Zugleich haben die angestrengten Eltern paradoxerweise das Gefühl, dass sie noch mehr leisten müssten, um die Last der Elternschaft schultern und ihren Kindern etwas bieten zu können. Aber wo sind Kreativität, Spiel und Selbstvertrauen geblieben? In seinem Erziehungsratgeber der anderen Art zeigt Tom Hodgkinson neue Wege zu einer lustvollen Erziehung auf. Unabhängige Kinder und glückliche Eltern, darauf kommt es ihm an. Er fordert uns auf, den Kindern Verantwortung zu übertragen und den Dingen Ihren Lauf zu lassen, anstatt Freizeitspaß teuer einzukaufen. Hodgkinson ignoriert alle modernen Erziehungsratgeber, er lernt stattdessen aus eigenen Fehlern und befragt die großen Denker aus geistvolleren Zeiten, unter ihnen Rousseau, Locke und Lawrence. Und so ist »Leitfaden für faule Eltern« keine Bedienungsanleitung, sondern eine inspirierende Sammlung von Reflexionen über die Frage, wie wir gemeinsam mit unseren Kindern das Leben genießen können.

Are you pregnant, or hoping to have a baby soon? This book is a reassuring and thought-provoking 10-step guide for women who want to go through pregnancy and birth with as little intervention and disturbance as possible, with a midwife or consultant in attendance, for the sake of safety. Based on the idea that childbirth is a healthy process and not a sickness of any kind, this book will provide you with the information and inspiration you need in order to get your baby - or babies! - born healthily. (Actually, the book features several mothers of twins or triplets, who also had completely normal births, as well as mothers who were considered high risk for other reasons, such as being over 30.) The 10-step programme is presented in a chatty, easy-read format and includes information not usually easily-available to non-experts, as well as plenty of first-hand accounts or comments from women who ve had entirely healthy births. (There are also a few cautionary tales from those who didn t...) Contributions come from Michel Odent (pioneer of water births), Janet Balaskas (the woman who realised we re better off not lying down when we give birth!) and Bill Bryson (the travel writer)... as well as from many other experts and ordinary but extraordinary mothers, who made this book possible. In short, this is a handbook which could make a real difference to your future and also that of your babies and wider family. There is a comprehensive Glossary and Index, which could be very useful to you if you re new to this business of having babies, or if you want to make your experience far better than it was last time. A comment from an antenatal teacher: What every woman will want to know, put simply and clearly. A comment from a midwife, perinatal researcher and adjunct professor (Betty-Anne Daviss): Sylvie has created a prescription for healthy birth in a 10-step approach to keep parents focused on what is important in a potentially disastrous birth environment... She has... provided us with a book that encapsulates anything you wanted to know about keeping your birth normal and healthy... And a comment from a mother: Had a very late night Friday as I could not put your book down. Wow!
