Birthing a Better Way

Birthing A Better Way: 12 Secrets For Natural Childbirth


Birthing a Bette Way presents a fresh, proactive, and positive approach to why you may want to consider the safest and most satisfying kind of birth---natural childbirth---especially in these times of overused medical interventions. Kalena Cook, a mother who experienced natural childbirth, and Margaret Christensen, M.D. a board certified obstetrician-gynecologist, have written this much-needed book for expectant mothers and their caregivers, imparting proven safe or "evidence-based" information with compelling narratives. More than fifty powerful testimonials include healthy mainstrcam women who answer why they chose natural birth (instead of Pitocin, inductions, epidurals and C-sections), what it was like, and even how it compared to a medicated birth. Six physicians share why they birthed their own children naturally, and not in the hospital. Going beyond actual birth accounts, the authors reveal 12 secrets which bring confidence in the normal process of birth and inspire you to believe in what you are beautifully designed to do."Thank you for writing Birthing a Better Way; it is exactly what we need now. The storytelling model plus expert commentary is perfect. We need this alternative. I love the book and will recommend it to everyone!"---Dr. Christiane Northrup, author of Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom"Through positive birth stories, Birthing a Better Way helps women work out what they want and gain self-confidence."---Sheila Kitzinger, author of Pregnancy & Childbirth: Choices and Challenges"To reawaken a woman's natural and intuitive ability to express birthing and mothering is a must in our fast-paced, time-pressured society of quick fixes. Birthing a Better Way opens the way for a new era in birthing for the many beautiful and wise mothers of the future."---Dr. John F. Demartini, author of Count Your Blessings: The Healing Power of Gratitude and Love"This book offers what prospective mothers aren't getting: Birth---in its pain and glory and above all consciousness---is at once the most primal and transcendent human experience. I have never been more alive than during the unmedicated home birth of my daughter. This book offers that aliveness to any mom who doesn't want to miss out on a milestone."---Victoria Moran, author of creating a Charmed Life: Sensible, Spiritual Secrets Every Busy Woman Should Know
