birth the book


BIRTH: Conceiving, Nurturing and Giving Birth to Your Baby is every prospective parent’s bible and now a bestseller in Australia and New Zealand. It is reader-friendly and reassuring, providing practical, up-to-date, accurate and unbiased information. At around 600 pages, BIRTH manages to answer virtually every question you may have relating to preconception, pregnancy, childbirth and early parenting.

BIRTH explains medical treatments and natural therapies, describing the many normal physical changes of pregnancy and what to expect for labour and birth or when having a caesarean, including possible variations from the norm and the mother’s physical recovery. Catherine and Sandra dispel common myths and address the many concerns and endless worries women, their partners and support people may have, as well as providing options for achievable support strategies.

Many aspects of BIRTH move into unchartered territories, such as the realistic management of labour pain and common emotional reactions women and their partners may experience on their journey to parenthood, including relationship changes and challenges and how to survive them.
