Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Birth Partner is the definitive guide for preparing to help a woman through childbirth and the essential manual to have at hand during the event. Since the book's original publication in 1989, fathers-to-be, new mothers' friends and relatives, and professional doulas (labor assistants) alike 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.

This fully revised and updated edition includes the latest information on: techniques and devices for easing labor pain; epidural anesthesia and other types of medication; tests and treatments of the fetus and newborn; vaginal birth after cesarean; and much more. For the partner who wishes to be truly helpful in the birthing room, this book is indispensable.
