Today I have had the wonderful opportunity of including Sheri Menelli’s wonderful eBook entitled : Journey into Motherhood: Inspirational Stories of Natural Birth into The Psychology Of Giving Birth Programme.
The aim of the Programme is to reframe peoples views of what birth can be like and this ebook completely supports that goal. It provides both inspiration and education. This guide to natural childbirth offers 48 personal accounts of labor and delivery without medication. Revealing the many options women have beyond birthing location, the testimonials offer insight into the joys, concerns, and realities of natural birth. From delivering at home with a midwife and hearing the right words from a hospital nurse at just the right moment to describing a combination of the Bradley method and acupuncture at a birthing center and discussing a child's birth at home in warm water, this resource combines personal insight with referential information. A glossary of terms and a resource guide to books, magazines, websites, videos, and CDs, and listings of childbirth classes and instructors nationwide are also included.
Here are some of the reviews of the book:
"...I highly recommend it." -- Gurmukh, Director, Golden Bridge Yoga and Author
"...these inspiring stories of natural childbirth show that childbirth can and should be safe, empowering and beautiful." -- Penny Simkin, founder of DONA and co-author of When Survivors Give Birth: Understanding and Healing the Effects of Early Sexual Abuse on Childbearing Women
"women and girls need to hear these stories and know that natural birth is full of magnificent, life-changing wisdom." -- Christiane Northrup, M.D., author of Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom and The Wisdom of Menopause
The book is currently on Amazon for a price of $13.46, but you get is absolutely free with The Psychology of Giving Birth Programme which is only $47.00 anyway!
Sheri has allowed me to include this ebook as she is committed to getting the message out there about how birth can be so different to a lot of people’s views. Thank you Sheri, firstly for writing the book and secondly for joining with me on the unique crusade to make a difference to birth days.
