EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW TO PREPARE FOR BIRTH
Many parents-to-be and their support people have little knowledge of what to expect in the birthing suite. Drawing on his extensive experience as a leading obstetrician and international researcher into safe childbirth, Professor Stephen Tong guides you through vital information to help prepare for a safe and happy birth day.
Simply written and accessible, the pages are packed with information and real life stories covering:
• The stages of labour and birth
• How different forms of pain relief, including epidurals, work
• Induction of labour, ceasars and assisted birth
• Monitoring of the baby and mother
• Post childbirth recovery
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. The Birth Book is a warm, wonderful and reassuring companion for birth.
