Not for the fussy. goodmemorylane The busy woman’s guide to taking control of pregnancy and birth. Pregnancy titles have never been thicker on the ground, and women have supposedly more choices in childbirth than ever before. So why do 6 out of 10 women feel their antenatal classes completely failed to prepare them for birth? And 7 out of 10 say that they did not get the birth they wanted, and regretted it deeply? Blooming Birth is a hands-on, focused guide to taking control of your pregnancy and birth, helping you prepare your body and brain for childbirth in the real world. It does not, like many pregnancy books, assume that all pregnant women have to do is sit around in sunny kitchens drinking orange juice. It is also a book for thinking women – both first time mums and those having second or subsequent babies who simply want it to be better this time. Each chapter contains crib sheets and bullet points for when you've only got a few minutes to spare. In succinct, highly engaging language, in chapters from Birthing for Beginners to Frozen Peas and Pyjamas, it takes you through the realities of pregnancy and birth – from stretchmarks to guilt – and the decisions to be made, so that you can be confident of having a manageable, happy experience – whatever happens on the day. Contents • Pregnancy for busy women • Birthing for Beginners • Second Time Around • Preconceptions • The Unexpected • Surgical Birth • Your Options • Your Support Team • Your Partner • Frozen Peas and Pyjamas – the keys to post-childbirth success Amazon Reviews Great information! Great approach for more fearless birth! By Amazon Customer on May 20, 2005 The cover got my attention. The content got it into the hands of my daughters. A friend recommended Blooming to me because my daughter is having a baby in 4 months. I read it, and learned so much I didn't know, even though I had 4 children. I want my daughters better informed. This book has an entertaining way of giving marvelous information in a concise, fun way. It is a book for the busy woman of today, who wants to pick it up when she has time in her busy schedule. These two women are very informed and "today" women. There is no doubt they have "been there, done that" and have much to impart. Where was this book in my day?! Blooming Awesome! By Susan on May 19, 2005 Julia and her partner have so much information to share with women! I wish I had had this book during my first pregnancy. I will make sure to get a copy for every woman I know who could benefit from this wealth of information! Best book for expectaing mothers and VBACS especially! By Katharine M. Russell on May 19, 2007 I wish I had read this book the first time around! Besides being totally readable and even funny while presenting necessary and important information, it actaully helped me prepare for my birth in a real and practical way. After my first birth being a cezarain I really needed some support and good informaiton. This book really helped me and I recommend it to everyone I know who is expecting. Don't read the books that tell you what to be afraid of, there's too much of that. This book actually helps you prepare for what will happen, and even what might or might not happen. This is written by women who really want women to have healthy births...no ulterior motives. I had a great VBAC and I credit this book with some of that success. I suggest reading this book and getting a doula. 5.0 out of 5 starsInformative and Entertaining By Carrie Cotton on April 14, 2006 I love this book! The information in this book is laid out in such an easy to read way and is easy to go back to reference as well. Lots of interesting facts that I didn't find in other books, I felt much more informed about birth and labor. It left me feeling this is going to be hard work but I will be able to do it! The other thing I loved was how entertaing it was I laughed out loud quite a few times. I reccomend this book to everyone I know who is expecting. http://www.amazon.com/Blooming-Birth-pregnancy-birth-want-ebook/dp/B00J7EHZCQ/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1457795720&sr=1-1&keywords=Blooming+Birth%3A+How+to+Get+the+Pregnancy+and+Birth+You+Want+2014#customerReviews USD$25 excluding shipping as at 18 Aug 2017. http://www.amazon.com/Blooming-Birth-pregnancy-Guderian-Paperback/dp/B00IGZ1SP2/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_2?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1457795720&sr=1-2-fkmr0&keywords=Blooming+Birth%3A+How+to+Get+the+Pregnancy+and+Birth+You+Want+2014
