Review

PRAISE for THE BIRTH PARTNER   “Penny Simkin shows how giving support in childbirth is not only a matter of helping a woman through labor and delivery—important though that is—but also of enabling her to cherish a meaningful memory of birth.” – Sheila Kitzinger, author of Rediscovering Birth and The Complete Book of Pregnancy and Childbirth   “A clearly written book that describes what really happens in our maternity units. I recommend it highly for both parents and a supportive friend.” – Marshall Klaus, M.D., author of Bonding, Your Amazing Newborn and Mothering the Mother

Product Description

Since the original publication of The Birth Partner, new mothers’ mates, friends, and relatives and doulas (professional birth assistants) have relied on Penny Simkin’s guidance in caring for the new mother from the last few weeks of pregnancy through the early postpartum period. Fully revised in its fourth edition, The Birth Partner remains the definitive guide for preparing to help a woman through childbirth and the essential manual to have at hand during the event.
 
This completely updated edition includes thorough information on:

Preparing for labor and knowing when it has begun;
Normal labor and how to help the woman every step of the way;
Epidurals and other medications for labor;
Non-drug techniques for easing labor pain;
Cesarean birth and complications that may require it;
Breastfeeding and newborn care;
And much more.
 
For the partner who wishes to be truly helpful in the birthing room, this book is indispensable.
